Change your career and join the growing dog grooming profession

Published on Wednesday 18 January 2023

The Derby College Group is offering the chance for people to embrace their love of animals and re-train to work in dog grooming.


Olivia Jogela, Dog Grooming Teacher with Loki

The 18-week Level 2 Certificate for Dog Grooming Assistants will be held one day a week at the Dog Grooming salon at the College’s Broomfield Hall site in Morley starting next month (February).

It will cover a wide range of skills including practical grooming, pet health, canine behavior and handling. Also included in the course and price is a professional grooming kit, dog grooming manual and an online canine first aid course run by a qualified vet. 

Award winning Dog Grooming Lecturer, Olivia Jogela, who runs the salon and who previously was trained at the College, explained: “There are such a wide range of career and self-employment opportunities for professional groomers.  

“This course is therefore ideal for people who have a real love of animals and want to gain a first-class qualification to train in this profession.

“The course is a combination of classroom work and then practical sessions in our on-site commercial dog grooming salon to give people real hands-on experience of the profession.”

Olivia, who gained her professional grooming qualifications four years ago at Derby College before working for a national pet store company, came back to the College to run the salon.

Olivia, explained about the Dog Grooming Course: “I chose the course to help me get into the dog grooming industry and to fast track me into gaining a career in dog grooming. It is something that I aspired to do, because of my love for dogs and wanting to work with them. I know it’s a very popular career choice, so I knew having a dog grooming qualification behind me would massively help me gain the experience and knowledge to be able to find myself in a dog grooming job much quicker than I would without a qualification.”

Olivia continues “I thoroughly enjoyed the course and it gave me an amazing head start into a dog grooming career. After the course I gained a dog grooming assistant role, within less than a month of finishing the course. The course allowed me to have that edge on the other applicants, as I had the additional knowledge and experience that they did not have.

“From that I went on to become a dog grooming stylist and then a salon manager at a dog grooming salon. Now I have become a teacher of dog grooming, which is amazing as it just shows how this course has helped me. All this was achieved from me starting with a good foundation of experience and knowledge gained in the Level 2 City and Guilds dog grooming course.

‘The Level 2 City and Guilds dog grooming course gave me the best possible start to gain the career I wanted’.”
