The Explorer Cadetship Program is an industry designed ‘Gap Year’ program in the Australian Thoroughbred Racing and Breeding Industry. It kicks off with a 13-week residential learning component of practical and theoretical training where Cadets study the Certificate II in Racing (a nationally recognised qualification), followed by two paid work-experience placements at a leading racing stable and stud farm.
Cadets accommodation is arranged throughout the year to take the stress out of where you will live, and for 9 of the 12 months, you will be earning an income while you learn.
The Explorer Cadetship fits perfectly into one year and if you are serious about building a career with horses, this is the ultimate entry pathway on offer.
Applications are open to anyone in Australia aged between 18 and 24 and the program commences in February each year.
