    Hello,

    I am 21 years old and I have an itnerest for chaning my career . I would like to work with animals at some point. I know I need qualifications for that and I am ok to pay for it. I live in Chelmsford, Essex and there aren't too many academies or schools to be able to study. As I am working at the moment, I would like to do it online and then do practices in a vet's..

    Any advise? ideas? recommendations?

    Thank you!

    What job exactly do you want to do? I suggest you research that first - it will dictate what academic courses you need to pursue, plus any veterinary practices you approach will need more than just 'I want to work with animals'.

    Hello,
    I am open to options. I am more interested in Veterinary Nursing but I would also do Dog Grooming. I plan to do more than one course and see what I like more.

    Have you heard of Writtle College? It’s an animal college in Chelmsford. Maybe they will have something suitable.
