OSCAR's 2019 winner is Julie Dixon FdSc Welfare of Animals (Wildlife Conservation).
The presentation took place on 11th July at the Higher Education Graduation Ceremony where she received an OSCAR trophy for recognition and a cheque for £250.00.
The award not only strengthens Julie’s official qualification but also increases her self-worth: illustrating dedication and commitment to her future career.
OSCAR sponsors an award-winning student at Myerscough College, every year, because animal welfare resonates clearly with its role in industry as a responsible pet food supplier: a franchise business that combines self-employment with education, identifying respect for applicants and support for customers.
Having built its reputation on quality products and services, OSCAR confidently maintains its high standards in an increasingly articulate pet industry. To run a successful business, OSCAR knows that comprehensive training must be backed up by experts in the field and that gaining a personally recognised qualification secures confidence by providing self-assurance in pet nutrition and animal welfare needs.
Myerscough College offers an alternative to university study for those leaving school but still wanting to develop a career. Its courses offer some of the best practical teaching facilities in the country and OSCAR, whilst keen to support Myerscough with various products, also offers employment for successful students.
As Myerscough College celebrates 125 years, it remains one of the UK’s largest, land-based sports colleges. Offering degrees in more than twenty subjects, awards are given for various accolades within each subject category, including: Greenspace & Creative Studies, Motorsport, Agricultural Engineering, Sport, and Animal Studies.
