A leading VN training provider has announced the creation of a dedicated business school at its headquarters in Cambridgeshire.

The College of Animal Welfare’s (CAW) new business school is based in Chord Business Park, Godmanchester, and provides a range of bookkeeping and management courses accredited by the Association of Accounting Technicians (AAT) and the Institute of Leadership and Management.

CAW lecturer Emma Helkenberg with business studentsCAW director Leslie Heaton Smith said: “The opening of our business school is a new development in a long line of achievements and marks an exciting new venture.

“While our focus has always been towards developing technical animal and veterinary-related knowledge and skills to make significant improvements in animal welfare and veterinary care, we also recognise quality of care is also highly dependent on the management and leadership of those controlling and investing the organisation’s often scarce resources.

“Thus, to provide high-quality welfare to animals entrusted into their care, organisations need to be able to employ people with such skills.”

The business courses are open to both veterinary and animal welfare professionals and the general public.

Commenting on industry demand for the courses, CAW marketing spokesman Alison German told Vetsonline: “We’ve had a really positive response from VNs who are either head nurses looking for qualifications to consolidate the [leadership] experience they already have, or from those looking for these courses to build towards the next step in their careers.”

  • CAW’s leadership and management courses are already underway. The majority of its AAT courses will start in September 2013. However, it will kick off a Level 2 certificate in bookkeeping at the start of June 2013. For more information, visit www.caw.ac.uk
