New veterinary nursing training centre in Wigan

Veterinary nurse training to continue in Wigan


ProCo NW, are no longer offering Veterinary Nursing training and therefore we have been able to add the Wigan centre to our current four centres in Edinburgh, Leeds, Huntingdon and Hertfordshire.

Here at The College of Animal Welfare we are really pleased to be able to support ProCo’s veterinary nursing students with continuing their training and we will now be responsible for all student veterinary nurses and training practices previously associated to ProCo. All affected students and training practices have been notified.

Looking to the future, we are pleased to announce that applications are now open for our Level 3 Diploma in Veterinary Nursing (Small Animal Pathway) programme starting from Wigan this September.   

As the largest provider of veterinary nurse training in the UK, studying with us offers the opportunity to train within a like-minded community who all share a common passion for animals and enthusiasm for an exciting and rewarding profession.

The course is open to those who wish to undertake the Diploma as a standalone qualification or to train as an apprentice using the new Apprenticeship Standard in Veterinary Nursing. The VN course will run on a day release basis, with attendance for those starting in September taking place on Wednesdays. Places are limited, therefore we would encourage prospective students or apprentices to apply as soon as possible.
