Sparsholt College is launching a part time Masterâ€™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: â€ťThis 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 ÂŁ2800.Â Students will have a subject specialist teaching mentor and will be treated as a new member of the teaching team.â€ť
The Masterâ€™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)
