Equine Apprenticeship Programme at CAFRE Enniskillen Campus

CAFRE Enniskillen is offering young people an opportunity to “Earn as you learn”.  The Northern Ireland Apprenticeship programme is an excellent way to gain British Horse Society qualifications, while continuing to earn and develop practical skills in the workplace.

Apprentices on the programme attend CAFRE Enniskillen Campus for short training blocks throughout the year, with regular visits from tutors to their workplace to review progress.

CAFRE recently welcomed new apprentices onto its equine Apprenticeship programme. Apprentices got the opportunity to ride, attend lectures and practical classes, and meet and greet other students.  Katie Gill from Kilkeel has recently joined the Apprenticeship programme and is excited for the year ahead.  Katie would like to open up her own riding stables and believes that this course offers her all the tools required to do this.
