Thoroughbred Industry Education

Education is at the core of our business at The National Stud, where we have been training industry leaders for over 30 years.

The Education team runs two annual residential courses. Both are tailored to provide students with the industry knowledge and practical training required for a successful career in the international Thoroughbred industry.

The qualifications we offer are accredited by the industry’s qualification awarding body 1st4Sport. In addition to our residential courses, we offer a range of qualifications which can be delivered and assessed in the workplace. If you are working in the stud industry and would like to gain formal recognition of your skills, get in touch to discuss the options available.

The National Stud works closely with a number of partners to ensure our Education programme is in line with industry developments and accessible to all. These include The Horserace Betting Levy Board, Thoroughbred Breeders’ Association, The Racing Foundation, and the Wavertree Education Trust.
