Animal Care Department

ABOUT THE DEPARTMENT

The Animal Care Department was established in 1996 and its activity and development is a great example of how the supplementing of the training programme with new competencies and analysis of the niche labour market can turn training programmes (on the professional level) into the business field sensitive not only to the labour market, but also to the environment.
