- Posted by: pembscollegesuperadmin
Former Pembrokeshire College Animal Management student, Kaitlynne Cutajar has secured a year-long placement at Professor Noel Fitzpatrick’s Supervet practice.
Chosen from a cohort of 68 applicants, Kaitlynne went through a rigorous interview process including several exams, an interview with the clinical nursing team, another with the Professor himself before ending with an observed theatre session.
With only one placement offered every two years Katilynne was thrilled to be selected, “The interview process alone was a great experience and I couldn’t quite believe it when I heard that I’d got the place. I start in June and I can’t wait, I’ve just got to learn to get used to the cameras!”
The former Pembrokeshire College student is currently studying a degree in Veterinary Nursing Science at the prestigious Hartpury College and her year’s work placement marks the start of the second year of her course.
Professor Noel Fitzpatrick is one of Britain’s top veterinarians, his TV show, Supervet showcases his practice treating hard-to-cure ailments with innovative care and surgical techniques. Fixed rig cameras in the practice’s waiting room and behind the scenes capture the highs and lows of a working veterinary practice, of which Kaitlynne will soon become a part of.
Pembrokeshire College lecturer, Tina Martin Weavers said, “It’s fantastic to see one of our students doing so well! Kaitlynne will gain invaluable experience working at such a cutting-edge practice, she’ll be brilliant.”
Thinking about the future, Kaitlynne would like to embark on a career in the Army as a veterinary technician. With her current studies going well and an impressive work placement on her CV, the sky’s the limit!
