Gemma Tattersall completed her Advanced Apprenticeship in Horse Care with KEITS a few years ago, and her career is going from strength to strength! She has been selected to be a part of the three-day event team headed to the 2016 Olympic Games in Rio, and will be looking after Team GB's horses.
In her profile, Gemma reflected that her time as an apprentice had given her strong practical skills, as well as the knowledge to support those practical skills. This understanding of topics such as the skeleton allowed her to have more in depth discussions with vets and farriers. Gemma was also able to improve her Maths and English skills while working in an area she loved.
After the Olympics, Gemma plans to carry on training horses for exciting competitions, including Blenheim and the World Young Horse Championships.
We love Gemma's success story, because it so clearly demonstrates the value of a good Apprenticeship to a young person's career, and we are very pleased to be supporting KEITS as they continue to improve the prospects of young people.
