What will I study?
The Pearson BTEC Level 1/Level 2 First Award in Animal Care has been developed to provide an engaging introduction to the animal care sector for learners aged 14 years and above. It is designed to be taken as part of a broad curriculum, alongside GCSEs and/or other vocational subjects.
Animal care is a vital sub-sector within the land-based industry and is important to the UK economy.
This BTEC First Award is designed to give an introductory overview to some of the key principles, knowledge, understanding and skills relevant to the animal care sector. Learners will study animal health, which is externally assessed via a written paper-based exam, as this knowledge and understanding is essential when caring for animals. Learners will also develop their safe animal handling skills, which is vital in order to effectively care for animals.
Learners will then have the option to choose two areas to study from a limited range of optional specialist units:
This qualification is intended for Level 2 learners, with Level 1 achievement possible, where appropriate, for some learners. This qualification also signposts links to the GCSE English and mathematics criteria to contextualise literacy and numeracy within a work-based environment. Upon successful completion of this qualification, learners could progress onto further study in a related area, for example, the BTEC Level 3 Nationals in Animal Management, or more broadly to other land-based subjects at Level 3.
Students in years 12 and 13 will follow the Pearson BTEC Level 1/2 First Award in Animal Care
