Dudley College students are celebrating today as they received their first interim results of the year, and for many, the first exam results since covid began.
BTEC Level 3 Animal Science second year students achieved 100% pass rate, and first year students 94%, with record numbers achieving distinctions.
Curriculum Manager, Phil Steele, said: “As we know, covid disrupted exams for everyone so these are the first exam results that these students have received since covid began. They have worked really hard and the results prove this. They should all be very proud of their achievements.”
Employment rates in the animal care sector are set to grow by 6% by 2025 so this is a great career option for young people. Careers in animal care are wide ranging with no two days the same. It’s an exciting career path and our students will experience that when they complete their studies.
Jared Fearon aged 18 who studies Animal Science said:
“I’m really happy with my results. It was a difficult unit and I’m so proud of myself for passing it. I’m really enjoying the course and the tutors are so supportive. I know I made the best choice in coming to Dudley College.”
Skye Stock scooped a distinction level pass in her first year for a notoriously difficult unit and couldn’t hold back her excitement. She said:
“I’m just delighted with my results. It’s confirmed I’ve made the right course choice and I can’t wait to complete the course. The course is career-focussed and hands-on so it’s preparing me for work and I’ve already secured a part-time job working with animals thanks to the course.”
