MUM-of-one Weronika Gwiazda, 35, works for Vets Now in Chippenham and did Refresh Your Edge in 2016. She said the programme was exactly what she needed before embarking on a career in ECC.

Weronika, who is originally from Poland and expecting her second child, said: “I particularly liked the fact I could study from home and that I was able to work my notice in my old job while doing the training.

“I enjoyed the mix of weekly lectures and practical sessions, which took place over three weekends, and the mentored shifts were also very valuable as they gave me a chance to see, in real life, just what a job in ECC would look like.

“After completing the programme, I felt far more confident in my abilities as an emergency vet. But I was also more open to talking honestly about mistakes. We are all human and mistakes happen and the key is to discuss them openly and learn from them. This was one of my biggest takeaways from the course.”
