The College of Animal Welfare was established in 1989 by one of the leading animal welfare charities, Wood Green Animal Shelters in Cambridgeshire. The vision was to use education to help tackle animal welfare issues and the problem of unwanted and abandoned animals.

In 1996, the College, known at the time as the Wood Green College of Animal Welfare, became an independently managed, not-for-profit, organisation in its own right and changed its name to The College of Animal Welfare.

Today, the College has centres in Cambridgeshire, North London, Yorkshire, Greater Manchester and Scotland and specialises in training in the land-based sector. We strongly believe that education and training is the key to raising standards of animal welfare. To this end, we strive to create new and accessible opportunities for learning, and encourage employers and those working with animals to undertake appropriate levels of training and continue with lifelong learning and education.

The College of Animal Welfare are committed to enabling our students to make the most of their time with us, enjoying their experience, along with gaining valuable skills and qualifications to ensure a bright and prosperous future.

Business Administration Apprentice in Godmanchester
on 13 April 2016
Productive workplace

Being at the College of Animal Welfare helped in one way, but also did not. It helped me discover i absolutely love Business Administration and i will not get off this Career path. But CAW itself knocked my confidence down very much so. I am very unhappy with the Management there.

Unpaid hours and unfriendly culture

Be prepared for lots of work in your spare time - The Principal is fuelled by insomnia and assumes staff are motivated by the same. The culture has an undercurrent - it's dark, twisty and generally unpleasant. There have been some big names in the veterinary industry within these walls. None of them stay. The longer term staff have been out of clinical work for so long they have no idea of the demands or standards required by the businesses they are supporting.
