The Entry to Stud Employment Programme provides an opportunity for those who wish to pursue a career in the Thoroughbred (racehorse breeding) industry but lack the practical experience required. The residential phase of the programme is fully funded by the Thoroughbred Breeders Association and the Racing Foundation.
The course is delivered in 2 phases, the first is a 9-week residential phase at The National Stud which consists of practical work-based training and a series of evening lectures. Students who successfully complete phase 1 will then interview for a 6-9 month work placement at a UK stud farm, where they will complete their Level 2 Diploma in Work Based Racehorse Care (Breeding Option) accredited by 1st4Sport.
No academic qualifications or specific work experience is required however, a strong work ethic, passion for horses/racing, and working outdoors provide a distinct advantage.
