• Education & Training Grant Programme

    HRI administers an education and training grant programme which is available to all racing industry employees who are working in Ireland. 

    The programme will make a contribution towards the cost of any Quality and Qualifications Ireland (QQI) or equivalent accredited course or training programme and is part of HRI’s commitment to providing access to education and training opportunities for employees in the racing industry. A full list of applicable QQI accredited courses can be found by going to www.qqi.ie.

    In order to apply for the grant programme candidates must complete the application form in full, which is available to download here, and meet the following criteria:

    - You must work 30+ hours per week with your current employer

    - The course or training programme proposed must be an equine related programme, or be relevant to your current role within the industry
    - The course proposed should offer a QQI (or equivalent) award upon successful completion

    - You must be currently working in the Irish racing industry and have done so for the previous two years 


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