There is a wealth of opportunity to get involved at NTU Canine Centre, from enrolling on one of our courses with your own dog, to helping out on the different courses.
If you are a current NTU student looking to enhance both your theoretical and practical skills, you are welcome to help out on any of our courses. You must be able to commit to helping out for the duration of the course (i.e. the 7 weeks) and you will be fully briefed prior on what the role entails. Helping on courses can count towards placement hours for FdSc Students. If you have previous experience, or indeed have volunteered for a number of courses, you may be eligible to help run certain classes allowing you to gain valuable experience. For more information, please email Emily on firstname.lastname@example.org
Students are also able to help out on Agility Team GB training days. This is an excellent opportunity to gain an insight into what agility is all about, to get involved with agility research projects and again, to develop your skill set. All whilst watching the UK’s elite agility partnerships training. More information on Agility Team GB can be found here.
In conjunction with The Kennel Club, we also help students work towards accreditation with the KCAI (Kennel Club Accredited Instructor) Scheme. Through helping on the courses it can develop your skills and help you gain valuable experience of running training classes. For more details on the scheme, please visit The KCAI Scheme.
