(Expected December 2020)
This online course and workshop will walk you through some of the key considerations involved in working to help animals and will help you plan your next steps.
It will provide you with information on the animal advocacy community and the diverse and exciting career opportunities that are available.
At the end of this course, we expect that you will be bursting with ideas of career paths that would enable you to help animals effectively and would be highly fulfilling.
What’s more, it will provide you with the knowledge that you need to start working out which career path will enable you to maximise your positive impact for animals. In the workshop, you will be supported to use this knowledge in creating a career plan and working out which actions you should take next.
You’ll also meet a group of peers going through the same process as you. You will be able to support each other to make progress on your goals, during the course and afterwards.
THE ONLINE COURSE
This will be split over nine weeks, with each online session taking an hour or two to complete. The sessions are:
Why farmed animals?
What does the farmed animal movement look like today?
Which interventions should we focus on?
How can you donate effectively?
How can you have a career that helps animals effectively? (Two sessions)
How can you test your personal fit?
Can you help animals?
How much have you learned? (Test)
This will take one full day. It will be conducted remotely via Zoom and include:
Introductions, networking, and group support with your peers,
Discussion of the content from the online course, and
Career planning sessions and support.
After the workshop, we will also provide some follow-up contact and support to help you implement your plans.
If you think that this course sounds too “introductory” for you, you may find the information on our careers advice page more helpful, which includes a one-to-one advising calls service.
Please note that individuals cannot apply for both our one-to-one careers advice call service and our online course and workshop, regardless of whether you are selected or not. Both programmes will have a 50% acceptance rate. To be admitted into the workshop with their peers, participants in the online course must pass a test on the content that has been covered. The test is not very hard or designed to catch-out sincere participants; it consists of multiple-choice questions, designed to test understanding of the key concepts.
