We’re saying a big well done to our Apprentice Keeper, Becky Shore, who has been named Learner of the Month by her training provider.
Becky, aged 20, joined our bird section in October as part of an apprenticeship scheme run in conjunction with KEITS Training Services and was nominated for the award by her assessor for her hard work, attentiveness and professional integrity.
The 13-month course involves specific assignments which cover all aspect of zoo life, including animal care, diets, breeding and conservation and educating members of the public.
Birds Section Leader, Nicola Wright, said: “We’re really pleased about how well Becky has settled on the department especially under such difficult circumstances. I look forward to seeing her use the skills and knowledge she has already picked up with our visitors now we can welcome them back on site.”
