Distance Education - Study at Home
For Kids Who Want To Be Vets!
Kids Vet Club (KVC) is a Veterinary Education programme provided by informal Distance Education. The course is presented as written work & available to kids anywhere in the world. Our unique learning program introduces kids to the different subjects they will study should they choose to pursue formal Veterinary Studies in Tertiary Education.
Ideal for kids & teenagers alike - the course is suitable for kids 10 - 18 years old. Kids study at their own pace, wherever they like - at home, on holidays, in the car, anywhere! We aim to present the work in a format kids in the above age group can understand, however we do have members who are 8 years old!
The work is based on university studies, the terminology is quite technical - by its' very nature, veterinary study is challenging.The kids will need to be prepared to study! So if you have a keen child they are welcome to join. Similarly, if you have a teenager who may think "It's just for little kids!" - they may want to think again!
KVC is the tip of the Veterinary Science iceberg! If you or your child wants to be a vet - or a vet nurse - this is where you can start!
Kids will study at their own pace - their is no time frame. You may take a week, a month or a year to do a topic. It's up to you. Put it down for a time then pick it up again when you're ready. The course must be studied sequentially, starting at Topic One. However, you can order one topic at a time or as many topics as you wish.
Kids & teens can start KVC whether they are studying at school, homeschool or even while on holidays! After joining KVC by filling in the Join Up form, you can order the first Topic One Learning Package which includes our quality KVC folder, Learning Material with their own stethoscope & thermometer.
