Horse care and management


The most common grade awarded to students in the Vocational Qualification in Horse Care and Management was ‘good’. The VET providers cooperate with each other actively and the development of working life relevancy is well underway. However, there is still need for development in the guidance and assessment skills of workplace instructors.

A national evaluation for vocational qualification in horse care and management implemented in 2015-2018. The evaluation data was obtained from grades given for demonstrations and the data describing the arrangement of such demonstrations. The evaluation covered approximately 340 students and all 8 VET providers offering the qualification in question.

The national final report was released in 2019.
