Canine Therapy

VPC were delighted to start Canine Therapy last week, which is now going to be available to students across the college. Pets as therapy can provide a range of benefits to the health, emotional wellbeing and mental health of our students.

VPC had a a great first visit with the dogs and enjoyed getting to know them. Student Skye, was very happy to be with the dogs and discussed owning a dog with the owner and is excited for the next visit. Skye said “I love that dog!”

We look forward to sharing more visits across all the centres!

As a result of outstanding teaching, over time students make excellent progress and develop the knowledge and skills they need to achieve their goals.
