About the Stud Start Program

Stud Start provides an opportunity for people wanting a career change who are interested in pursuing a job in the thoroughbred breeding industry.  

It is a six-week program that begins with online learning and finishes with a week-long intensive teaching block in Scone, NSW. All tuition costs are covered for successful applicants.  

During the week in Scone students will take part in practical, hands-on learning with horses, as well as classroom teaching. Other activities include farm visits, hearing from expert speakers and a careers night where trainees will learn about the different roles in breeding.  

Stud Start involves formal study and trainees will complete three accredited units from the Certificate III in Horse Breeding. All participants who finish Stud Start will have the opportunity to continue studying the other units in the Certificate III and receive a formal qualification.  

The aim of the program is to provide those taking part with the basic skills and knowledge to start their journey in the industry’s workforce and also provide connections to help trainees find their first job.
