Developing Life Skills with CAFRE Enniskillen Campus

CAFRE Enniskillen Campus Level 2 Equine student Thai Cunningham from Dromara, Co. Down, completed her five weeks work placement at Ballylinch Stud, Co. Kilkenny.

Thai enjoyed her time at Ballylinch, “It was a really great experience.  I’ve learnt lots and I would definitely recommend it to other students!”  Adrian Sherry, the General Manager was pleased that Thai was able to handle stock well and assist with foaling outside of hours.  Adrian found Thai to be keen and interested, and he was delighted that she asked plenty of questions.

Work placement is a very valuable aspect of our courses at Enniskillen Campus, encouraging students to research the industry, make contact with work placement providers, and negotiate terms and conditions.  This enables students to develop vital life skills, in addition to gaining experience and making links in the equine industry.

Applications are still being accepted for courses at Enniskillen Campus for September 2019 intake.  For further information visit www.cafre.ac.uk or follow us at DiscoverCAFRE on Facebook and Instagram.  Alternatively contact Shelley Stuart, via email shelley.stuart@daera-ni.gov.uk or telephone 02866244633.
