Love horses and want to start a career in the equine industry? This Level 2 Diploma is equivalent to four GCSEs and is designed to give you the skills and knowledge needed to work in the horse industry.
You’ll get a great introduction to the knowledge and skills needed to work with horses including routine duties on a rota basis. Routine duties on the yard at the college will give students a taste of what it is like working with horses on a full-time basis.
These skills will be developed through a mix of guided practicals and classroom teaching including routine duties on the yard and riding lessons.
Routine duties on a rota basis are an essential part of the programme. This will involve working on the equine unit carrying out practical duties. Work experience is carried out throughout the year.
