Leadership and management “the key to excellence”

Leslie Heaton-Smith, Marketing and Development Director at The College of Animal Welfare, explained: “Whilst technical skills and knowledge create the opportunities for the best possible care of patients it is the leadership and management of staff and resources that is key to delivering clinical excellence, gold standard veterinary care and a positive client experience time and time again.”

As a professionally recognised qualification, successful candidates will be able to apply for professional membership of the ILM, and thereby be permitted to use the Institute’s internationally recognised post nominals.
