How do I become a Veterinary Support Assistant?

There’s no doubt about it, working with animals is hard work. However, it’s also extremely rewarding. This course has been developed for those providing basic care to animals under the direction and/or supervision of a veterinary surgeon or veterinary nurse. There are no formal academic entry requirements but some employers may ask for qualifications like GCSEs. A Veterinary Support Assistant is a key member of the clinical team.

If you wish to increase your responsibilities and further your career in the field of veterinary services, you could continue your training and education with veterinary nursing courses or a university degree to become a veterinary nurse or surgeon.
