Diploma in Sporting Excellence

The Diploma in Sporting Excellence (DISE) is designed to give young people the opportunity to work towards nationally recognised qualifications as well as gain invaluable coaching, mentoring and work experience in a relevant and inspiring environment.

The DISE replaces the Advanced Apprenticeship in Sporting Excellence in line with the changing nature of government apprenticeship standards and funding.

The scheme is delivered by British Dressage and British Eventing, in partnership with Hartpury College, and by British Showjumping in conjunction with Haddon Training Ltd. They all offer selected talented riders the chance to progress their skills whilst learning how to manage all aspects of life in a professional sport, as well as the chance to continue their education.
