CPD is uncapped at Vets 1 (so long as your VetGDP is done and dusted). We invest on average £4 to £5K per team member per year, higher of course if starting down the certificate route.
New graduate training scheme
Over New Grad scheme goes above and beyond any other in the UK. Each new grad is assigned on a 1:1 mentor for a full 6 month period. For the first two weeks you work together as closely as a medical leech, then slowly as skills and confidence develops, the Mentor steps back a little but is available at any point needed.
We talk. Lots. We talk formally and informally. We of course stage formal reviews, but more importantly we touch base, we sneak up on you and whisper in your ear, “hey, you okay?”
