We offer a variety of training opportunities from vet training to animal care.
Mayhew’s Community Veterinary Clinic is a placement provider of extra-mural studies (EMS) for UK veterinary university students. Our EMS placements are now fully booked for 2021 and 2022. We will update this site when new placements are available.
In response to current restrictions, we are not currently accepting applications for 2021.
We provide a dynamic training opportunity for Student Nurses. They will have the opportunity to learn their profession in a modern, well equipped veterinary clinic that provides full service veterinary care for the animals onsite as well as low cost preventative care services for the local community. The role is hard work but is extremely rewarding. How do I become a veterinary nurse? There are two main routes to becoming a qualified veterinary nurse – vocational training through employment, or through higher education. Mayhew is an Approved Training Practice and works with the College of Animal Welfare to offer practical placements for their students. For more information please email our Head Veterinary Nurse at firstname.lastname@example.org
Mayhew works with KEITS to provide a work based diploma in Animal Care (Level 2 and Level 3). We have a limited amount of students we can take on each year and vacancies will be posted when they are available. The diploma is a hands-on learning experience, with no days at college; the assessor meets the students here at Mayhew, sets targets, observes their work and helps them put together evidence of learning. Students are also well supported by the team they work with. The diploma covers work with both dogs and cats, and students spend equal time in each section. Students will spend four days a week with us, one of which will include a weekend day. The work is very rewarding but it can be both physically and emotionally demanding. You will be working in all weathers and be getting dirty. Your work will involve cleaning kennels and cat cabins, socialising with the animals, walking dogs and making notes about the behaviour of the animals. You will be assisting with feeding, learning about how a rescue centre runs behind the scenes, working alongside other students, volunteers and staff.
We are not able to offer any work experience placements for 2021 and as such will not be accepting applications.
Work experience is a vital part of education that gives an insight into working life, and Mayhew has always welcomed students to help determine what career path a person would like to follow. Unfortunately, due to Covid-19 this will not be possible for the next year.
