Our courses open up numerous career opportunities in handling, supervising and caring for animals, from small domestic and exotic pets to large animals, livestock, wildlife and zoo animals.
Many of our students progress onto Higher Education to study a wide variety of courses, including: zoology, animal science or animal management, veterinary sciences or nursing and animal behaviour.
Capel is home to a wide-range of animals across our London centres. We manage over 300 animals in our collections and our farms at Brooks Farm, Crystal Palace Park, Enfield and Gunnersbury Park.
You will study animal science and business as well as important hands-on practical experience looking after our animals: feeding, handling, health checking and maintaining their accommodation.
Each of our centres has dedicated teaching facilities and resources appropriate to the courses we offer, with exceptional tutors who are all industry-experienced.
