Awesome news! Scholarship won

As some of you may be aware, I am keen on continuing and improving my knowledge and skill base by educating myself. There are only two courses I wish to complete and a possible third. One is the BSc in Animal Behaviour, the Roger Abrantes course. The other is the Jean Donaldson Academy for Dog Trainers course.

I spent 7 days composing my submission forms. I lost my completed forms twice. Once due to a computer error and once to human error. After discovering the solution I finally finished and sent off my forms, breathing once more after being so stressed and upset at losing my efforts twice. I knew I stood a chance, but I never thought I would be lucky enough to be chosen.

Well, guess what? I was chosen! I was welcomed to the Academy by Jean and I spent the next few days on cloud 9. What an awesome opportunity to learn from one of the greatest names in the industry and gain a decent qualification! I cannot thank Jean and the scholarship team enough, I’m so grateful as I would never have been able to afford the course otherwise.

My blog will be updated about the course, it will be good for me to chart my progress or regress. As an Aspie I am a little worried about my brain not being able to cope at a higher level of study but I have got this far in my life I’m not giving up now, my career is too important to me. It may actually be fortuitous to be doing a FdSc first, giving me good preparation for the intense BSc via the Ethology Institute. I shall find out in time.
