Background to the Post

As one of the largest further and higher education colleges in the UK, with unique colleges across two counties, we aim to deliver learning experiences which lead to the development of wider skill bases and improved destinations for all of our students, and apprentices.

Our recent Ofsted inspection highlights our success and strong focus both on students and apprentices and on meeting industry needs. We are also one of only five colleges in the UK to be granted Foundation Degree Awarding Powers by the Privy Council – meaning our higher education academic quality and standards are equal to any university.

The post holder’s primary objective is to enable equine apprentices to look after the routine day to day husbandry and care of equines under guidance in a variety of different settings. The work is carried out individually or as part of a team in places such as Riding Schools, Livery Yards, Racing Stables, Studs, Hunting Yards, and Competition Yards. The Equine Groom may also be required to assist with the preparation of, transport to and care for horses at competitions, the races, sales, shows and other public appearances. Dependent on which sector of the industry the Equine Groom has chosen, appropriate people skills will be essential. Equine Grooms must have a strong work ethic and be prepared to work irregular hours in all weather conditions. They must maintain safe working practices and take responsibility for themselves, animals and others to develop learning in the specified subject and to fulfil the aims of the curriculum programme of study. You will be required to teach across the various pathways of the Equine Groom apprenticeship.
