The Thoroughbred Club (TTC) is pleased to announce that they will be offering full members the opportunity to apply for a grant through a new initiative, TTC Bursary. Continuing the support members received thanks to last November’s Careers Course, TTC has created the new initiative to help further members’ professional development as they pursue careers within the horseracing industry.
The bursary has been introduced following feedback from TTC members and conclusions from the Thoroughbred Breeders’ Association’s Industry Workforce Analysis. TTC Bursary will enable full members of the club to submit an application for a grant of up to £500 to fund an educational course or continued professional development activity which will allow them to develop or further their career in the breeding industry. TTC committee believe that young people within the industry will benefit greatly from a bursary fund that can provide access to industry training and development.
All full members of the club are eligible to apply from 1st April 2017. Example grant requests could include:
- Training course, e.g. Stud Secretary’s Course, The Racing Industry Course, National Stud Lecture Series
- Entry cost for attendance to an industry event or conference
- Equipment to support development of career
