"A job in the equine industry is dynamic, rewarding and a way of life! There are many career pathways such as; professional competitor, dietician, groom, instructor and yard manager. 1st2 Achieve have a range of equine qualifications to get you into employment.

The Equine apprenticeship program is an excellent opportunity for anyone aged 16-24 years old. It is completely free and you will earn whilst you learn. An apprenticeship will provide you not only with necessary qualifications but also with the essential practical skills and knowledge that employers require.

Work based diplomas are flexible and can fit around family or other commitments making them ideal for anyone looking for a part time program. If you are aged 24+ and have no prior level 2 qualifications then these qualifications are completely free. For anyone else, there is subsidised training. Get in touch now"

KELLY  MARKS founder of Intelligent Horsemanship:
"I am supporting 1st2 Achieve because of the work that they are doing to ensure horse welfare across the UK by offering free Level 2 Diplomas and Apprenticeships in Horse Care.

1st2 Achieve are also actively involved in supporting the charity Riding for the Disabled by raising awareness, volunteering and financial contributions; all to ensure that the RDA can continue their work across the UK."
