Places left for the WEBIT project final conference: Education and Management in the Equine Industry through IT

On Monday 12th May 2003, Equistudy, Warwickshire College's distance learning unit, is holding the WEBIT Project Final Conference at Moreton Hall on the college's Moreton Morrell campus. The conference will examine the use of information communication technology (ICT) in the equine business, with particular emphasis on work-based training and equine management.

The £500,000 WEBIT (Warwickshire Equine Based Internet Training) project, which is financed through the European Social Fund, has established some excellent learning links with local equine businesses. It is hoped to build on this work through the new Equine CoVE (Centre of Vocational Excellence) initiative that emphasises supporting education in the horse industry. Warwickshire College received CoVE status in Equine Studies at the start of 2003.

The WEBIT conference will provide an insight into IT solutions by focusing on two areas of particular interest to equine business: health and safety training and management of day-to-day activities in riding schools.

Mini-demonstrations and presentations will be available after lunch and will provide a close look at a variety of practical IT solutions in the areas of equine business marketing, training, education and business management activities.

The conference is subsidised by the European Social Fund for those in the West Midlands area, although those outside this area are welcome to attend for a fee of £15, which includes lunch and delegate bag.
