Learning and Development

To give you the best start, we'll also support you through a comprehensive induction programme. For many vets, this is through one of our Edge programmes. Our clinical development team has developed a unique programme of training and courses to continue your learning and development as you progress in your role.

Our ongoing training is diverse and flexible, offering different options depending on your needs. You can study online at a time and place that suits you, attend onsite training sessions with your district team, day seminars, and of course, join our annual emergency and critical care UK Congress.

For all veterinary surgeons and principal nurse managers, we support and refund VECCS membership, allowing access to online journals and discounted rates on IVECCS and EVECC Congress.

If you manage a team, you'll also receive leadership development training to help you make the most of your people's talents and abilities.
