Lead your veterinary team to success this Summer, with a Leadership & Management qualification!

When you find yourself promoted to the role of team leader, head nurse or manager, you may find many aspects of your new role challenging.

Leading a team of people and managing scarce resources are two of the biggest challenges that exist in the veterinary and animal care profession.

It is essential that your team are motivated by their work and are all working towards the same goals. This is your opportunity to really make a difference to the members of your team, the business and ultimately to the animals in your care. By undertaking a qualification in leadership and management you can develop key leadership skills, learning to:

  • Manage team dynamics
  • Utilise individual strengths
  • Delegate workloads
  • Give direction and guidance where necessary
  • Contribute to planning, problem solving and decision making
  • Help to drive your business forward

During the current crisis, it’s more important than ever to be able to lead your team with care and confidence.

If you’re a head veterinary nurse or practice manager, our ILM accredited leadership and management courses can help you nurture the skills needed to motivate your co-workers, manage stress levels in your team and deal with difficult situations, all whilst boosting your career and salary prospects.

Starting on 6 June, the courses offer a combination of online learning and study days, allowing you to fit your studies around your day-to-day commitments. What’s more – if you’re employed in a veterinary practice, you can save over £500 on course fees this Summer, and get a year’s free membership to the Veterinary Management Group (VMG).
