What is Animal Education?

Home Learning is the new name associated with Animal Biology and Care Education. This because we offer more than courses for animal-related subjects. We are an organisation that provides high-quality learning for those who are unable to attend college, university or night classes or who wish to maintain their privacy but want to improve their personal and/or professional standing. Most courses revolve around animal welfare in some way.


With our accredited courses we offer an alternative pathway to demonstrating subject knowledge and understanding with the underpinning aim of providing the ability to apply both knowledge and understanding in real life.

As from 19th March 2024, Home Learning with Animal Biology and Education is no longer a limited company. The decision for this change has been difficult and has been necessary due to the increased costs of running a limited company. Now, this website shows the range of courses available as private, bespoke courses.
