Equine Employers


apprenticeships can make you more effective

An employer who supports staff training will see an increase in

- staff retention

- productivity

- profit

- motivation


Developing employee skills and education can make your business more effective, productive and competitive by directly filling your skills gaps and improving employee self esteem and loyalty. Apprenticeships enhance staff motivation and retention by giving extra responsibility and making the employees feel valued.

Equestrian Training operates in partnership with Carlisle College, Division of Newcastle College Group, to deliver equine and business apprenticeships with equine businesses.  Equestrian Training also operates independently to deliver equine, customer service, business and event management apprenticeships to large employers.  All training and support is quality assured to a high standard.

The Employer Role


The Employer Role


1. As the employer, you are expected to give your apprentices an induction and provide on-the-job training. You are also responsible for paying your apprentices' wages and providing a safe and healthy environment in which to work.

2. You must sign an Employment Contract with them agreeing the normal terms and conditions for employees (specifying holidays, sickness, notice periods etc).

3. ETL likes to work closely with apprentice employers to ensure training needs are met and the apprentices are supported at all times.

4. We endeavour to formulate a training plan which fits in with the workplace and takes advantage of busy periods where a lot of evidence and experience can be gathered for the apprentices' portfolios without disrupting the daily routine.

Equestrian Training's Role


Equestrian Training's Role


From the beginning we will guide, advise and support you on recruiting and employing an apprentice.

Once you have selected an apprentice, a senior team member will arrange to meet you both at your location. A parent/ guardian may also be present at this initial meeting, during which we ensure everyone understands what is involved in the apprenticeship.

Your apprentice will be assigned a qualified work-based assessor who will support and guide you both through the qualification framework. We are always contactable and endeavour to be as flexible as possible with regular visits to site.
