British Racing School
AN APPRENTICESHIP PROGRAMME WHICH OPENS THE DOOR TO THE RACING INDUSTRY
This course is for 16-22 year olds who are interested in a career in racing. Following a successful interview you will embark on this fourteen week programme where you’ll learn everything from horse riding to yard work.
After the 14 week course we’ll find you a full time paid job in a working Horse Racing Yard where you can continue your training, begin an apprenticeship and achieve your Level 2 Diploma, fully supported by The British Racing School.
NO EXPERIENCE IS NECESSARY, BUT A GOOD ATTITUDE IS ESSENTIAL
Successful applicants for the Foundation Course will be hard working, enthusiastic and keen to work in the racing industry. A certain level of fitness is required to work in a yard, so you will be given a fitness test as part of your interview. Yariv Kam is personal trainer who carries out our fitness test, if you wish to contact him then his website is newregym.co.uk
Tuition is free for EU/EEA residents. Accommodation and meals for the duration of the course are provided at a cost of £562.50 for nine and fourteen week courses and £250 for four week courses from 2020 these charges will change slightly, the 9 and 14 week courses will increase to £590
