Are you a veteran with a passion for horses and seeking a new employment opportunity in 2024? Apply now for the Fast Track Program 2024 intake.
Applications for the 2024 intake of the Thoroughbred Breeders Australia training program Fast Track opened on 7 February. Thoroughbred Breeders Australia (TBA) are a Veteran Employment Commitment signatory and a proud supporter of veteran employment.
Now in its seventh year, the program has proved a successful pathway with close to 90% of trainees continuing to work in the industry after completing the course. Employers around the country have embraced the program as a means to gain new employees into the industry.
Successful applicants commence a full-time paid 12-month traineeship with a stud farm while studying for a Certificate III in Horse Breeding – a nationally recognised formal qualification.
To complement the on-the-job learning, students attend two intensive learning blocks in Scone (six weeks in total), where they receive a mix of practical training and classroom theory, as well as take part in a variety of field trips and personal development workshops.
Applications close 11 March 2024. For more information on the Fast Track program and to access the online application form please visit the TBA website: https://www.tbaus.com/fast-track-program/about-the-fast-track-program/
