    Okay, so I am new to this forum. Last time I signed onto this, I was 18 and wanted to be a midwife!! Those days are gone 😂😂

    I did a Level 3 Extended Diploma in Animal Management when I was younger then during my 'midwife - one born every minute' stage, I did a HE/Access to Health Studies then left after a year and now I work in a pet shop full time with the exotic animals (reptiles, amphibs etc.). Recently, I've been thinking about teaching Animal Care as it is a subject I am passionate about and the fact that it is rubbish money doesnt necessarily bother me, my pay right now isn't fantastic 😂😂😂😂 just wondering what kind of steps I would have to take? As animal care is a bit of a weird one, that its not quite mainstream schooling or uni grading? Has anyone transitioned into teaching at a older age (Lmao im only 21) but I am interested in how long it would take, whether there is any point... if anyone else has any experience in this PLEASE message me

    Animal care is mostly taught in further education such as in colleges so you would need to do a teacher training course to teach this age group. With your animal care qualification being level three, you could apply to a college to take the following courses in order: level 3 award in education and training, level 4 certificate and level 5 diploma. Most such courses are offered part time. They are the ones formally known as ptlls/ctlls/dtlls.
