Vetpol Steering Group

Vetpol chairs an Advisory Panel of experts from across the SQP market who contribute their opinions, knowledge and expertise and assist with brainstorming and decision-making. This is because Vetpol aims to do things differently:

  • To drive up standards in the training and regulation of SQPs
  • To continually improve in every aspect, including training materials and methods, student support and customer service
  • To elevate the professional recognition of SQPs
  • To harness modern technology in the quest for continual improvement, enhancing training, training delivery and CPD

The Directors cannot do this alone!

We currently have a sufficient number of members on the Vetpol Steering Group but if you feel you have something to offer and would like to be included, please contact us and we will notify you when a position becomes available.
