VetSkill is thrilled to share some inspiring news! Hannah Dow RVN is the first learner to be awarded an overall distinction grade for the VetSkill Level 3 Diploma in the Veterinary Nursing (companion animal) qualification. Hannah works at Medivet Sidcup and trained with The College of Animal Welfare.

Hannah said, “After starting the level 3 diploma during the pandemic, the last two years have been beyond intense but incredibly rewarding. I’m thankful I can now say I love what I do every day!” 

Hannah started the course in June 2020 and has been supported by an excellent team of lecturers at the college. Achieving an overall distinction for the veterinary nursing qualification demonstrates aptitude and skill and involves sustained effort and commitment from learners. 

Nina De Franco, Head of Veterinary Studies at CAW expresses, “We are immensely proud of her achievement and wish to thank Hannah and Medivet Sidcup for their motivation and drive for success – the symbiotic relationship of student, training practice and college has clearly been effective”

The College of Animal Welfare offers a range of VetSkill veterinary and animal care qualifications as well as many other centres across the UK.

Leanne Ashford, Qualifications Manager at VetSkill, explains, “As we start to see more VetSkill learners qualify and enter the sector as regulated professionals, we hope to see an increased number attain overall distinction grades. Again, we congratulate Hannah on this magnificent achievement and wish her all the best as a Registered Veterinary Nurse!”
