Careers in Teaching: Work at CAW!


Have you been there, done that and got the gown and gloves?

If so, why not share your knowledge and experience of veterinary nursing with the next generation? At The College of Animal Welfare we regularly recruit for a number of teaching positions. Previous experience in teaching is not usually required as successful candidates will join our teacher training programme and be mentored as their career develops. A list of roles that we have recruited for in 2017 so far can be found below…

Veterinary Nursing Lecturer – Lecturing is perfect for those with a genuine enthusiasm and passion for their subject. As a veterinary nursing lecturer, you would teach on a range of programmes, such as the Level 3 Diploma in Veterinary Nursing or BSc (Hons) Veterinary Nursing programmes. You may also have the opportunity to attend events on behalf of your employer, or teach on short course programmes.  Find out more about what it’s like to be a lecturer at CAW

Day-to-day you would undertake regular visits to Training Practices to support clinical coaches; you could also be presenting clinical coach training sessions and standardisation events, as well as delivering student support.
Academic Assistant – Academic assistants are responsible for supporting students across a range of courses; liaising with lecturers, student and employers where necessary to help them achieve their qualification.  View the job description

If you’re keen to use your knowledge to help the next generation, but can’t see yourself leaving practice, have you considered training as a clinical coach? Clinical coaches act as a mentor to veterinary nursing students in practice, and support them in completion of their Nursing Progress Log (NPL). We offer free clinical coach training to those working at CAW Training Practices, and those supporting CAW students. View our upcoming clinical coach training sessions
