Purpose:

The purpose of this activity was to increase awareness and engagement with the potential employment opportunities within racing to young people who would like to gain employment within the racing industry. Some of these learners are winter leavers (left school at 15 years old) and had extensive experience with horses/ racehorses. This training route enables people to get training and remain at home which in turn removes a barrier to success.
