VETERINARY DEVELOPMENT CHALLENGES IN THE UNITED STATES: The UK veterinary profession faces a number of challenges as a result of the Brexit vote, including a loss of expertise and expertise in veterinary medicine.
It is important that the profession stays engaged in the UK’s veterinary sector.
The Veterinary Society of Great Britain (VSWGB) is calling for the UK Government to ensure that veterinary training and certification is offered through a new sector in the future.
The VSWGB has released a statement, asking the Government to recognise the importance of this new sector and to ensure it is provided with the support it needs to deliver the vision set out in the Veterinary Association of Great Wales’ (VAW) 2017 Vision for the Veterinary Profession.
In addition, the VSWGBA supports the establishment of a new veterinary training qualification to provide an alternative to the current veterinary education qualification in veterinary education.
The Government must ensure that the UK Veterinary School of Veterinary Medicine is not excluded from this new qualification.
The Vet Education and Training Centre (VETC) has stated that it is a vital component of the UK VetCare programme, and is therefore not a prerequisite to a veterinary degree.
The UK Veterinary Society also supports the development of this additional training qualification.
It calls on the Government not to exclude the Vet School of Medical Sciences from this qualification.
We will also support the UK and its allies in establishing veterinary training certificates to be offered by other countries.
These courses will help to improve the quality of the veterinary profession, whilst supporting the wider veterinary education sector in Wales.
We hope that the Government will make a decision in the coming months to enable more training opportunities in Wales and beyond, and to make a clear commitment to the UK in this area.
VSW GB VETIASTS: It is our belief that this new training qualification, VetEducation, can provide the future of the Veterinary Industry and provide the UK with the best in training opportunities for veterinary students.
The new VETRIAH education qualification is a key component of our vision for a veterinary training industry in Wales, and should be supported by the UK.
The NHS, NHS Wales and other stakeholders, and all stakeholders in the veterinary education industry in the Welsh Government should ensure that all veterinary students are included in this new industry sector.
We look forward to continuing to work with the Welsh Governments to achieve this.
VAWGBA VETICS CHALLENGE TO SUPPORT THE VETTELLING OF AVAILABLE VETERS: The Veterinary Association (VA) is working with stakeholders across the industry to ensure this new veterinary education certificate is developed and offered to all veterinary applicants.
It has previously launched a challenge for the Welsh Veterinary Board to recognise its expertise and experience in the field of veterinary education and training.
The Welsh Government has been a champion of the VAWGs vision for the veterinary sector in recent years, recognising that Wales has a long history of providing training and qualifications to vets in the NHS and other veterinary health services.
It was the Welsh government that created the Vet Education Accreditation Agency (VEA) in 2014, which provides the industry with the expertise, support and support that it needs.
The current Vet Education Programme is a valuable contribution to this vision.
The British Veterinary Association, the Association of Veterinary Colleges and Universities (AVCIU), the Association for Veterinary Specialists (AVS), the Welsh Medical Association (WMA), and the Welsh Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals (WSPCA) are all supporters of the VetEducation Programme.
It also represents more than 4,000 veterinary schools across the UK, and more than 1,000 private veterinary colleges and universities.
The AVCIU, WMA and AVS are campaigning on behalf of the public to support the VetSchools vision for this new profession and to develop a new industry to offer veterinary training.
As part of this, they have signed a petition in support of the new VetSchool.
The letter states that: “We support the vision of a Veterinary Education and Veterinary Training Centre in Wales in which students are trained and then awarded Veterinary School Diploma certificates through a VSW degree, as a pilot project.”
We believe that the Vet Schools Vision for Veterinary Education is not achievable without a substantial increase in the number of veterinary schools that offer veterinary degrees in Wales at a time when demand for veterinary training is high.
The campaign to create a new Veterinary Education Certificate for the first time in Wales is a powerful and important step towards the future for the profession.
This will ensure that it continues to attract the best and brightest graduates from across the country, as well as the very best veterinary students in the world.
