    Britain’s best young instructor is to be selected next week, at the BHS Young Instructor of the Year Final at Warwickshire College (26 October).

    The aim of the competition is to raise the profile of young instructors wishing to progress further in their career. Eight talented young instructors will make their way to the competition, having been successful in the rigorous selection procedure.

    In March BHS Registered Instructors (PTT, BHSAI or BHSII standard) below the age of 30, submitted applications to the Training & Advisory Group. From the hundreds of applications received, eight instructors from each region were chosen to attend one of eight qualifiers. A finalist was selected at each of the eight regional qualifiers.

    “The BHS recognises that in the past some instructors have struggled with their Continual Professional Development and that this competition will encourage a greater number of instructors to come forward and gain further teaching qualifications,” commented BHS Director of Standards Margaret Linington–Payne.

    The winner will be awarded £500 training vouchers and the runner-up £300 training vouchers and both will receive a silver plate, certificate and jacket.

    The finalists:

    Christine Benwell Wellington, Hampshire
    Ruth Baxter Blackdyke, Cumbria
    Daniel Spencer Newton Hall, Suffolk
    Claire Turner Pippin Equestrian Centre, Dorset
    Sarah Parsons Liege Manor, Wales
    Nicola Pattoson Ingestre Stables, Staffordshire
    Helen Cole Wildwoods, Surrey
    Rachael Stephens Huntley, Glos

    Entries for next year’s competition will be taken early in 2007. Details will be available from February.
