CATS is a Careers Advice and Training Service for staff working within the British horseracing industry. The service can be used by anyone who wants to progress and develop within their current role or within the wider British horseracing industry.
Support through the CATS service is tailored to each individual. The degree of support could mean anything from simply answering a question or providing information, through to careers coaching sessions. Support may include assistance with job applications and job searches; advice on CV writing and interview skills and making funding applications for training. You can also create your very own Professional Development Plan.
The service is accessed through Racing’s Support Line; Racing Welfare’s 24 hour telephone and online support service. After making initial contact, people wishing to use the service will have a CATS telephone session arranged for a day and time to suit them. A trained Advisor will then work alongside them to answer any questions they might have; assess their current situation and explore the options available.
