CATS Protection, the UK charity dedicated to rescuing and rehoming cats, has visited Burnt Mill Academy in Harlow to talk to students about careers working with cats.

Students from year 7 to 11 interested in working with animals attended the after-school talk from community education officer Jonathan Ramsden, which focused on avenues into a career in animal care.

Cristin Casey, Burnt Mill Academy Trust director of performing arts, is a supporter of the charity and organised the visit.

She said: “It is important to open young people’s eyes to potential careers. Our visitor spoke with students about the subjects they should concentrate on to prepare for a career in animal care, how they can get experience working with animals and how to best look after their own animals.

“As a faculty, we are focusing on post-16 aspirations and raising motivation for our young people; we want students to become self-motivated and inspired. I want to provide them with as many opportunities as possible, so they have something in their lives that makes them happy every day.”

As a result of the talk, students have applied for work placements with the charity and are planning events to raise money to support Cats Protection.
