Penny King

Prior to employment at Craven College, I worked for East Durham College for nearly 11 years teaching Animal Management studies in subjects such as Animal Health, Animal Nutrition, Animal Welfare and Animal Behaviour.

At Craven College, I teach a range of subjects such as working dogs and basic dog grooming, as well as accompanying Countryside Level 2 students for off-site visits such as working with Yorkshire Wildlife Trust.

Before working in education, I worked as an Animal Technician looking after small mammals and volunteered at a private zoo which trained animals for media purposes looking after ungulate species such as camels, zebras, and giraffes.

My specialist areas of interest are Animal Health and Behaviour.
