2nd January 2010, 04:17 PM
Hi, i'm in my final year of an equine management degree and considering applying for the PGCE in post compulsory education to become a lecturer.
Just wanted peoples thoughts on this-has anyone done this or knows anyone who is an equine lecturer? :)

Ive done plenty of unofficial lectures for the riding group i helped found. It was all really good fun and i loved doing all the small projects with people. You need a really big passion for it.
If you enjoy that sort of thing, go for it! Have you got anything in mind of what you'd like to teach most?

its something i have considered when i am older but am happy doing my yard work at the moment
there are loads of colleges about which is good and i think equine science can also teach biology at GCSE so you have job opportunites there as well,

I've studied a lot of breeding at college so could specialise there, but I find biomechanics most fascinating, with behaviour a close second.

breeding is great it what i was doing before and am now doing but to a lesser extenet, personally though if you want to work in breeding you really need to go out and get some expereince, i worked with a degree student at my last job who did breeding at uni and yes she knew all the book stuff but god she was incapeable of doing the practical and was down right dangerous with some of it, which is one of the main reasons i left
