AT CAFRE Enniskillen Campus, the Equine Apprenticeship students had plenty to smile about, as they completed their British Horse Society (BHS) Stage 2 Exam in late 2020.
The Level 2 Apprenticeship offers students the opportunity to ‘Earn as they Learn’ whilst achieving a recognised qualification.
This programme helps students develop valuable skills and gain a recognised qualification whilst employed in the industry. Apprentices on this programme attend CAFRE Enniskillen Campus for short training blocks throughout the year, as well as completing weekly online theory sessions.
Kerry Creighton from Carrickfergus, who is employed at Dalways Bawn Livery Stables, said: “I am just thrilled to get my BHS Stage 2 exam. I really enjoy my time at CAFRE.
The blended learning approach really suited me and allowed me to work full time, as well as gaining a qualification. During lockdown, it was brilliant that we could carry on learning online, which meant we could complete our exam as soon as restrictions eased.”
CAFRE would like to take this opportunity to thank the employers who supported the apprentices and hope that their training and new skills help develop their business in the New Year.
