Becoming a Four Paws Groom School Satellite Centre

Becoming a Four Paws Groom School Satellite Centre

Four Paws Groom School believes in delivering the highest quality training and tuition to all of our students. We are pushing to raise standards in the grooming industry and we can directly access future professionals at the start of their career.

We are looking for like-minded salons and schools to join our expanding network of excellence training providers to deliver our exclusive, nationally recognised, Open College Network West Midlands accreditations and qualifications.

By signing up to the Four Paws Groom School codes of conduct and requirements, you will demonstrate your dedication to providing superior training and producing the stars of the future.

Being a Four Paws provider you can:

- Deliver the Open College Network West Midlands Level 3 Diploma in Dog Grooming Qualification

- Deliver a range of accredited courses to suit all your students’ needs

- Access all of our course resources including schemes of work, assignments and lesson plans

- Have full support from the Four Paws training team and network of other providers

- Attend annual seminars and conferences unique to our network

- Offer a simplified qualification structure, giving you and your students clarity and confidence

- We register all students on your behalf and process certificates

- We visit you and your salon to offer advice initially to enable the approval process and then thereafter annually to help you maintain the Four Paws standards

- We minimise the administration and quality assurance so you can dedicate your time to teaching and assessing

- Decide the cost of the training you provide to students and ensure it is appropriate to your centre and location

We have packaged our fees to suit the smallest to the largest centres.  Whether you train 2 or 82 students a year, we can assist every step of the way.

If you are keen to find out more, please call Sarah Mackay (Director) on 01606 889022 or email where you can be provided with the student fees for each of the courses Four Paws offer.
