The College has also added Floristry courses to its curriculum, to help meet local demand for training in this area.
Karen Dobson, Principal and Chief Executive at NULC, said: "It's an exciting time at NULC with the launch of these three exciting new vocational subjects from September."
She added: "All our vocational courses provide students with hands-on practical experience and employability skills, which help them to move on to the next level of study or progress into the workplace."
NULC is the only college in North Staffordshire to provide Small Animal Care as a full-time course at Level 1 and Level 2. During the course, students will have the chance to visit a variety of organisations that specialise in caring for small animals, as well as undertaking work placements in animal care environments, such as vets' practices and rescue centres.
The College's Horticulture students will be able to make use of the new gardening facilities at its Skills and Technology Centre, which include greenhouses and space to develop hard-landscaping skills. The College is also working in partnership with high profile local gardens and visitor attractions to offer work experience opportunities and placements for students, as well as the chance to work on community landscaping projects.
Ms Dobson added: "The College has a number of additional places available on a range of full-time A level and vocational courses starting in September. I'd encourage anyone who has yet to confirm their college place to get in touch with our expert advisors, who will be able to guide them onto the appropriate course."
NULC is currently home to around 3,500 full-time students and 1,600 adult learners. The College offers a wide range of courses including A/AS Levels, vocational courses and Apprenticeships as well as a range of courses for adults delivered within workplaces, at community venues and at the College's main campus on Knutton Lane.
