BTEC Centre Number 55955
White Rocks Farm is a small specialist centre offering BTEC courses in Land-Based Studies, Animal Care and Horse Care for students aged 14 - 18 who have additional educational needs.
We currently offer the following courses:
Entry level Land-Based Studies
Level 1 Land-Based Studies
(The above two courses include units in land management, horticulture, animal care and horse care so courses can be tailored to individual students' needs)
Level 2 Animal Care
Level 2 Horse Care
We pride ourselves on being a small specialised centre with a low student/teacher ratio. We not only offer our students the chance to learn to care for horses, and other animals in a beautiful environment, but we also teach valuable life skills which will enable our students to move successfully into the workplace.
Our students learn theory through practical tasks and gain hands on experience with the horses, and other animals in various environments both at White Rocks Farm, and at other relevant external events.
The first segment of the video below was shot at White Rocks Farm and explains how students can gain the experience and skills they need for the world of work. By kind permission of Chocolate Films.
