The Programme

The programme combines a dynamic range of lectures, visits and hands-on experience. There is continual assessment throughout the course which includes appraisals and a challenging series of projects, assignments and examinations on the theoretical and practical material covered. Individual externships are organised for trainees throughout the course. There is a significant element of self-study of prescribed course materials. Godolphin Flying Start has developed links with established universities and training providers worldwide who deliver and certify business and equine modules.
