The racing industry is celebrating National Careers Week by showcasing the diverse roles available across the sport.

Empowering Positive Change with Racing Welfare’s CATS service
‘The ethos for the week is ‘Empowering Positive Change through Careers Education’ which fits perfectly with the CATS service. CATS has an exciting week of webinars, Instagram lives and a bonus episode of the Racing Welfare podcast, ‘On Track, Off Course,’ being released. The podcast, featuring Luke Harvey, will focus on careers, while webinars with career coach Zoe Hendricks aim to give detail on the benefits of careers coaching and developing yourself.
Grounds Week via the Racecourse Association
As well as being National Careers Week, it is also ‘Grounds Week,’ launched by the Grounds Management Association. The RCA is marking this with The Going. This compiles a series of interviews with racecourse groundsmen, which will be released throughout the week. The Going will aim to explore groundsmanship from different perspectives and examine how people got into the profession, their aspirations and proudest moments.
