Post-16 Education We can host a small number of young people for post-16 NVQ courses in Horse Care and Small Animal Care at various levels. We are exploring the option of NVQs in horticulture as well but haven't got this in place at the time of writing. These courses offer young people the chance to acquire qualifications and real-world experience in the daily working life of a yard or with animals. The students will complete daily responsibilities including mucking out, grooming and caring for the horses or other animals. Students also complete assignments and collect evidence though out the year to support their qualifications in the different areas of study. We can also offer AQA Unit Award Scheme certification, in skills such as retail and customer service at our JAC in a Box shop. These placements are normally funded as part of young people's ongoing education.
