Paradise Park staff work closely with Duchy College www.duchy.ac.uk on a variety of animal care courses.
The college offers a combination of practical and theory work, and there are opportunities to gain industry experience locally including at Paradise Park. Check the Duchy College website for a list of current courses.
Here is an example of a course which includes a day at Paradise Park:
ANIMAL MANAGEMENT & VETERINARY NURSING
This example of a course will be of interest to veterinary nurses but also bird keepers, and is being taught by Paradise Park’s own Jill Thrower. Currently it costs £75 for anyone eligible for ESF funding (this would be checked on application) or £180 for the full cost course.
