I am Year 10 and my school no longer offers any Equine Studies VET Courses for Year 11 next year.

For my future pathway, I require Equine Studies, Biology, Accounting and Business Management to further my skills and operate a successful business in the horse industry.

So my question is, is there any schools, etc. offering Equine Studies in the surrounding areas of Werribee, or within 1 hour from Werribee, roughly?

I am really desperate, any information helps!
Thank-you Very Happy

Eltham College of Education offer the certificate to Year 10 and 11 students (It's a two year course). It's an hour from Werribee.

Check your local VET courses, out of school Smile Some might have it, however some might be cut, due to the government not supporting them.

Step away from the computer,
with this "pathway" you speak of, do you mean a uni course you want to do or just what you want to do once you finish school? if its not a uni course that actually requires these as prereqs then why worry, equine is good but not worth the effort a lot of people go to to be able to do the course, and as far as I'm aware it's not a requirement for anything. I wouldn't be too concerned with what you do in vce setting you up for the area you wish to work in but actually what uni/tafe courses you will be required to do and focus on getting into them, as vce wont provide you with enough education for running your own business or anything in the equine industry.

I wasn't too sure if I wanted to go to uni yet. I was going to see how I did in VCE first before I think about uni. I figured an Equine course would help to further my education and experience in the horse industry making me more aware, if that makes sense?

I'm also doing Business Management in VCE which I figured would be all about Managing your own business for the future as that's what my class is learning about at the moment which helps a lot Smile

i would have a look at some tafe courses and uni courses etc and find out the ones that you think would interest you or help you in what you want to do, then go from there Smile just sounds like youre going to go to a lot of trouble to do equine when it may not be worth it Smile but if you can do it easily enough then go for it, just dont feel like its going to determine your future if you dont do it!
busman is a good subject apparenty, wish my school offered it Sad

first year equine Crap!! like doing c cert in PC. second year hard like doing bio at uni really tuff in some areas. conclusion don't bother. Your better of going and doing somthing else and doing horse stuff once you finsh. If you do it at box hill and you live 1 hour away that totals five hours every week to go to a course that is to be honest not worth it. Did i also point out that prac days r not at box hill but are held at parkview in wonga park which is even further again. They also tend to change schelules and leave you room less. You be better using that time riding and studying. That was my main trouble. It took way to much of my time. By the time i left school early got there sat around for the 3 hour's and then got home it was pitch black and i had no time to study or ride. And you may think it is only once a week but like i said they make you commit to a day and then change it to what suits them for prac days. I was so happy when it was over. you'd be better off working in a stable they would teach you just as much.
