Sparsholt College is launching a part time Master’s (MSc) Equine Behaviour, Performance and Training Degree which offers students the opportunity to study for the Level 5 Diploma in Education and Training free of charge. The MSc can be studied part time over two years and the free teaching diploma is subject to students teaching in a relevant curriculum area for a minimum of three hours per week.

Kathy Bamber Head of Equine Faculty said: ”This is a great opportunity for graduates looking to further develop their equestrian academic skills and knowledge while acquiring, for free, a Level 5 teaching qualification which is worth £2800.  Students will have a subject specialist teaching mentor and will be treated as a new member of the teaching team.”

The Master’s focuses on the field of equestrian behaviour, performance and training, ideal for those with an existing interest in the key areas of equine behaviour science and horse-rider interactions, specifically their impact on equestrian performance. The Level 5 Diploma gives students the opportunity to explore underpinning theories, frameworks and research into effective teaching while also gaining practical teaching experience.

Sparsholt College offers a range of Equine courses from Apprenticeship through to the Masters. Equine Studies which was rated as Outstanding by Ofsted last year includes stabling for up to 75 horses, a 60m x 23m indoor arena and three outdoor arenas (70m x 50m with Olympic-standard surface; 60m x 30m; 60m x 30m)
