• Education & Training Grant Programme

    HRI runs an education and training grant programme for jockeys, both professional and amateur. The grant programme will allow for a contribution to be made towards the cost of any course or training programme that that a Jockey may sign up to and is part of HRI’s commitment to offering assistance, financial or otherwise, to help Jockeys to develop their skills and qualifications for their current role, or to help them prepare for life outside the saddle.

    The course or training programme selected must by accredited by Quality and Qualifications Ireland (QQI) or an equivalent body. A full list of applicable QQI accredited courses can be found by going to www.qqi.ie.

    The grant programme will operate on a reimbursement basis. Applicants to the grant programme will be required to apply, enrol, and pay any fees due for their selected course themselves. HRI will then reimburse part of this fee upon submission of the completed application form. The grant will be paid in two tranches: 50% at the commencement of the course and 50% upon successful completion.

    There are some terms and conditions, but not too many. For full details you can download the application form here, you can ring Sarah Stafford on 045 455618, or you can email [email protected].

    It is never too late to learn a new skill and it can really pay in the long term to acquire additional skills while you are still riding.
