What will you learn
This is open to anyone aged 16 or over, who works more than 30 hours per week in a licensed racing stable. Learners must already have achieved a Level 1 Diploma in Work Based Racehorse Care OR an equivalent equine qualification OR have relevant occupational experience. The qualification involves study of horse care, work projects collecting evidence of competency and practical assessments. A Level 2 Apprenticeship is an ideal way to increase knowledge and completion is a statement of competence to perform certain practical duties to a particular standard. The Level 2 Apprenticeship also prepares individuals for progression onto the Level 3 Apprenticeship. The Level 2 Apprenticeship is linked to the Scale 2 racing wage.
