Working Student

Equido is pleased to announce that there are three working student positions.  Working Students are required to attend 3 – 5 days per week (depending on level you are working towards) with one hour each day for lunch.  You will receive all training free but examinations fees will still apply (2/3 of course fee). Fee waivers may apply (UK Citizens only).

Please note that this learning opportunity is designed to prepare you for the work place (either as an employee or as a business owner) and as such you will be assessed and tested on your ability to complete all duties that would be required of you in the equine industry.  Depending on what level you are sitting will dictate to what level and detail the daily tasks will be (i.e. the higher the level the more detailed the tasks and the pass level will be of a higher standard).  Level Three and Level Four are both Instructor Level and as such you will be required to demonstrate a high skill level that you will be able to pass on to your own students.

If you are interested in applying for a position please contact Morag Higgins on:-
