Haddon Training teams up with British Showjumping
Haddon Training is delighted to announce an exciting new partnership with British Showjumping. Following a series of discussions and a successful pilot, British Showjumping have partnered with us to deliver specific apprenticeships and outreach training programmes through its’ employers and academies to meet the needs of their members and to increase participation and attainment of industry qualifications and skiils for life. Haddon will support members in their career development, help unlock their talents and develop their aspirations while they are in work-placed apprenticeships.
“We’re thrilled to be rolling out the educational arm for British Showjumping,” said Chris Hewlett of Haddon Training. “The work-placed apprenticeships are the flip-side of going to college and are publicly funded. Our aim is to link employers, employees and young people to build up a talented workforce. "Being born out of the equine industry we fully understand the specific needs required to deliver a portfolio of relevant qualifications. We’ll be targeting employers in our mission to support the next generation and offer BS members the opportunity to develop recognised skills with real wages.
A big “thank you” goes to HT Assessor, Corinne Bracken ,Children, Junior and Young Rider chef d'equipe who has been instrumental in assisting us with negotiations and winning the business. Corinne Bracken said: “The vocational route provides something incredibly valuable to a young person because it equips them with the skills they need to succeed in the workplace. It's great that parents, pupils and employers are starting to recognise the value of a vocational education. "Learning job-specific skills from people in the equine industry is an official form of education and the apprenticeship is equivalent to five GCSEs at A-C level while the advanced level is equal to two A-levels.
Haddon Training Learner, Targa Hammond has first-hand knowledge of the benefits and the vital support offered. “I’ve been associated with Haddon since 2006 when I went through my NVQ Level 3 Advanced Apprenticeship in Horse Care,” said Targa, who successfully completed British Showjumpings’s Bronze, Silver and Gold training scheme and furthered her skills as part of the Young Rider and the BEF World Class Training Squad as well. “I came out of Young Riders and wanted to develop my career from home,” she said. “Corrine was my trainer and Haddon my training provider. The route I took was greatly influenced by Corinne and I passed out at NVQ Level 3 and UKCC Level 2.
