Archant

The next generation of dog groomers is set to benefit from a new joint venture between the Pet Industry Federation (PIF) and Hadlow College.

The leading trade association for the pet industry, the Pet Industry Federation (PIF), and the ‘Outstanding’ Ofsted-rated Hadlow College are working in partnership to manage the dog grooming school based at Hadlow.

The Hadlow PIF Dog Grooming School offers City & Guilds qualifications for dog groomers which are recognised by industry as providing the ideal foundation for those embarking on a career in dog grooming.

The venture is the first of its kind, and forges a unique relationship between industry and education.

Operating on a commercial basis, the Hadlow PIF Grooming School will not be constrained by the academic calendar and will operate all year round, thereby helping more student groomers achieve success.
