Melanie Young


Having studied accountancy at university Melanie moved into her first role working in the accounts department for an international food processing company. Continued study while working resulted in achievement of the ACCA qualification and promotion to Joint Venture Accountant.  This involved working with farmers, a variety of staff at 14 sites across the UK and tonnes of frozen vegetables which resulted in some interesting stock control mysteries to solve.  Before coming to The College of Animal Welfare Melanie enjoyed varied roles such as auditor for a large supermarket, school governor and director of a small training company.  Melanie has now been teaching for over 20 years gaining assessor, verifier and teaching qualifications throughout her career.  Melanie is responsible for a range of subject areas at the college including Management, Coaching and Mentoring, Accounts, Administration, Customer Service, Veterinary Care and Animal Care programmes.
