CURRICULUM

The curriculum is designed for horse lovers and is aimed at providing a specialized education for those who wish to make a career working with horses. Our programs have grown out of a demand by young people for a facility where they can spend time learning about the care and keep of horses. They are given the opportunity to develop their riding skills to the level they are capable of.

SKILLS PROGRAMMES

These approved and registered skills programs are completed according to the learner’s level of competency and learning ability. Each unit standard making up the skills programs at each level results in a part qualification, which may lead to the Instructors level one qualification at NQF level 5.

The skills programs give the learner entry into over 40 career pathways within the equine industry.

Learners are assessed at the Academy by registered Assessors, and a statement of result is published on the official SAQA* national database. Assessments are subject to external moderation and each course year culminates in an external verification visit by

A roll out plan is presented to learners at course commencement; internal assessments are conducted during training, and external assessments at the end of each skills program.

Successful learners at each level, are awarded an REC Equestrian Academy certificate that is endorsed by the SETA*.
