Clinical Coach Standardisation

< Back to Clinical Coach information


In order to attend our clinical coach standardisation, you must comply with either of the following:

  • You are a Registered Veterinary Nurse or Veterinary Surgeon currently employed by a Training Practice affiliated with The College of Animal Welfare (CAW)
  • You are an active clinical coach for a CAW student within your practice.

Our clinical coach standardisation sessions are free of charge but are only offered to those who meet the above criteria.

Standardisation events are essential for all clinical coaches that are supporting veterinary nursing students. All clinical coaches must attend at least one standardisation event per year.

The College of Animal Welfare’s standardisation sessions provide an excellent opportunity to exchange ideas and opinions with other clinical coaches from a variety of practices. Meet up with other clinical coaches, share best practices and find out the latest news and developments in veterinary nurse training. You will also have the opportunity to work on any problem areas to ensure that clinical coaches are working towards the same targets and standards.

To book a place, select the relevant course below, fill out your details and submit.

Your information will be checked by a member of our short course team in order for your booking to be processed.  You will receive a confirmation email in due course, at least one month prior to the course date if booking in advance.

Don’t forget to book onto Clinical Coach Congress, our annual event aimed at veterinary nursing training and student support. Open to all Training Practices and clinical coaches throughout the U and is a recognised standardisation event!
