Young Professional

Young Professional 2018/19

Sport England funded     

 

Many young equestrian athletes reach an age where they have to make choices about future employment. This programme is funded by Sport England to support the transition of athletes moving out of the talent pathway to be retained in the wider equestrian sport network and support their continuation in the sport.

Run in collaboration with British Dressage, British Eventing and British Showjumping, the cross-discipline Young Professional Programme has been designed to help support an individual’s personal development, career planning and enhancement so at the end of the 12 month programme they have a wider and well-adapted skill-set that builds their confidence for continued work to thrive and earn a living in the equine industry.

Applicants who are not in full time compulsory education and are between the ages of 19 and 26 are eligible to apply.  The applicant must be able to demonstrate a commitment to a professional future in the equine industry. For example:

·        Running a yard/business (competition, training or breeding)
·        Working as an apprentice in a professional yard
·        Coaching in equestrianism either employed or self-employed

The structure of the Programme will hold up to eight core sessions delivered cross-discipline, with topics covered ranging from business management and business operations to media awareness, personal development and career enhancement.

Applications are now closed and will likely re-open in July 2019.
