In partnership with Equine Courses Kent, we are now offering a fully-funded, full-time traineeship course (4 months).  This will give you a City and Guilds level 1 Diploma in Horse Care.

This is a perfect introductory work-based horse care course ideal for those looking to kick-start a career in the horse care industry.  If college is not what you thought that it would be and school is not for you, this is an ideal option and includes English and Maths.

You will also have the chance to learn new skills in CV writing and interviewing techniques, as well as explore further career development.
