Work Experience & Training

Experience life in the veterinary sector

Veterinary Nurse Training

Highgate Vets is a Royal College of Veterinary Surgeons (RCVS) accredited training practice which means that we have been approved to provide high quality, standardised tuition for trainees who are studying towards their veterinary nursing qualification whilst working in practice. We only offer two trainee posts at a time, to give them the maximum attention and experience.  Kate is our very able and enthusiastic student at present, with Molly due to join her in training from 2019.

If you are considering a career in veterinary nursing, please visit the RCVS website which lists other suitable training practices.

Work Experience

At Highgate Vets, we realise the value of real-life work experience within a veterinary practice for current and prospective students wishing to study veterinary medicine or veterinary nursing. Therefore we are pleased to be able to offer one week placements to suitable applicants. Students must be over the age of 14, so be in year 10 or above at secondary school.

To arrange a work experience placement, please send an email to enquiries@highgate-vets.co.uk for the attention of Elizabeth Mason with the dates that you would prefer and a little bit of information about yourself.
