The Pearson BTEC National Extended Certificate in Animal Management offers an engaging qualification to support learners who want to pursue a career in an animal-related industry. It is intended as a Tech Level qualification and is equivalent in size to one A Level. This size of qualification allows learners to study related and complementary qualifications alongside it, without duplication of content. When taken alongside further Level 3 qualifications, it also supports access to a range of higher education courses in the animal management sector.

This qualification is generally taken alongside other Level 3 qualifications as part of a two-year programme of learning, which means that learners are also able to choose to progress to a range of specialist degree programmes. The qualification carries UCAS points and is recognised by higher education providers as contributing to meeting admission requirements for many relevant courses. Taken alongside A Levels in Biology and Chemistry, or a BTEC Diploma in the relevant field of study, such as Applied Science, it could lead to a:

• BSc (Hons) in Animal Management and Welfare

• BSc (Hons) in Applied Animal Studies

• BSc (Hons) in Zoology

• BSc (Hons) in Animal Science

• BSc (Hons) Animal Science and Health.

Taken alongside a BTEC Diploma in Creative Media Production, it could lead to a BA (Hons) in Film and Television Production for learners who have an interest in making wildlife films.

Learners should always check the entry requirements for degree programmes with specific higher education providers.
