RCVS Academy launches 'Working in the UK' courses
Two ‘Working in the UK’ courses have been launched by the RCVS Academy to provide all the necessary knowledge to practise as a veterinary professional in the UK, including details of how to register with the RCVS.
The courses have been designed to give targeted information for overseas-qualified veterinary surgeons and veterinary nurses, and build on the learning materials provided by the academy last year.
Those doing the courses will complete introductory modules suitable for all veterinary professionals, before moving on to more specific modules for the different professions.
Jennifer Ayers, RCVS academy manager said: “Moving to a new country and starting a new role can be daunting. We have designed these Academy courses to provide overseas-qualified veterinary surgeons and veterinary nurses with easily accessible guidance to support them in becoming registered members of the UK veterinary professions.
“Here in the UK, we are very fortunate to have a multitude of talented practising veterinary professionals from all over the world and want to make the process straightforward and supportive for others now looking to work in the UK.
“The new specific veterinary surgeon and veterinary nursing ‘Working in the UK’ courses provide targeted guidance for individuals dependent on their specific role, current qualifications and the place from which they qualified.”
The two courses, ‘Working in the UK for veterinary nurses’ and ‘Working in the UK for veterinary surgeons’, are free to access via the RCVS Academy.
