The Northern Racing College is the North's centre of excellence for training in the horseracing industry.  Based near Doncaster we have courses to suit those who have now experience with horses through to experienced riders.

The first step would be the 18 week foundation course (Level 1 Diploma in Racehorse Care) comprising of 12 weeks residential at the NRC followed by a 6 weeks work expereince with a trainer.  This will then lead to an apprenticeship with a trainer where you will start your Level 2 Diploma in Racehorse Care.

What makes us different:

We can offer training to those with no equine experience or academic qualifications.

Learner support:

The NRC has a good support structure for each learner, we have an instructor team, student welfare officer and roving assessor team.
