Jake recently attended SCT’s exclusive Masterclass for SCT apprentices and employers with British eventing team coach Christopher Bartle alongside Michaela Allen, who is working towards her Level Two apprenticeship with Jake.
“Michaela is a pleasure to have around – she shows good initiative and is someone who will be a real benefit to the industry in the future,” says Jake.
Michaela, 16, says that her dyslexia means that she finds it much easier to learn in a practical, hands-on way than in the classroom, and finds SCT’s online learning tool a great benefit.
“I know that I am learning the correct way because I am working towards a qualification, but I am also learning how to apply that knowledge every day,” she says. “I’d like to event and also to teach riding in the future.”
Jake is appreciative of the support SCT offers its employers as well as its apprentices.
“SCT helps us put the procedures in place to comply with all the legal aspects of employing staff – the company [Britain’s leading provider of apprentices to the equestrian industry] is very clear about what is expected of both us as employers and them as employees, which helps promote the professionalism of the industry. And the apprenticeship programme is well-structured, comprehensive and easy to follow.”
“SCT’s contacts within the equine industry not only give us access to training with people like Christopher Bartle, which we would never be able to do otherwise, it also can help apprentices pursue a wide range of paths into and through the industry.”
