Student Futures – hosted by the College of Animal Welfare (CAW) – takes place on 18 June and is aimed at students, as well as those who have recently qualified.

The event has been designed to offer professional advice that will “help newly qualified veterinary nurses get off on the right foot”.

Offering inspiration

Congress speakers will share their knowledge and experiences on topics such as:

  • the reality of working abroad
  • locuming in practice
  • becoming your own boss
  • protecting your professional reputation

CAW short course and events manager Tracey Croucher said: “There are so many different opportunities out there nowadays for VNs to get involved in – both in terms of post-qualification training and employment options.

“We hope this event will provide inspiration and choice to enable the next generation of nurses to use their qualification to further develop their career.”

CV clinic

Lunch and learn sessions, meanwhile, will provide the opportunity for delegates to “health check” their CV to look at other career options.

The event is to be held at CAW’s education and training centre in Godmanchester, Cambridgeshire and is available at a special introductory rate of  £49 + VAT. Limited spaces are available.
