Do you have little or no experience working with horses, but a passion to learn? Traineeships were made for you.
Traineeships provide school leavers and young people with little or no experience in a working environment to get training and experience, including:
learning in the workplace, focused on your area of interest, to help prepare you for an apprenticeship or job
recognition of your learning with a formal traineeship qualification
CV writing alongside learning what to expect in the workplace
support to improve your English and maths if you need it
You’ll be working in a high-quality work placement with at least 70 hours of experience (spread out over 6-16 weeks dependant on your prior experience) and receive training from an experienced Trainer-Coach and various professionals based at your chosen yard. You won’t be employed, or receive a wage, but you will gain the skills needed to begin your career and develop your confidence in the workplace.
We can also tailor your traineeship to be discipline-specific in line with your future goals if this is desired; we work with many renowned dressage, showjumping and eventing employers.
To take a Haddon Training equine traineeship you should:
be 16-18 years old* or up to 24 years old with an EHC plan
*if you have recently turned 19, please still get in touch and we may be able to help
have little to no work experience, but be motivated to work
have a sincere interest in learning to work with horses
be eligible and allowed to work in England
If you don’t fit the above criteria or you are unsure, you can still contact us so that we can talk you through this in more detail. It might even mean that you are ready to undertake an Apprenticeship with us and be employed whilst you learn.
