British Eventing Training & Education to develop regional structure

Due to continued growth, in 2016 British Eventing (BE) Training and Education (T&E) will undergo new developments to the regional structure.

Changes include the implementation of new Regional Committees and the introduction of eight regionally based employees; a new role created to provide support to the existing regional training and U18 volunteers.

With the aim to provide more training to BE Members, giving a stepping stone into the sport for non-members and to develop the training offering for all stakeholders, the new regional structure will also align the T&E programme more closely with the other BE regional boundaries to work towards a more coordinated and collaborative organisation.

As part of the updated structure BE T&E will introduce Regional Committees to implement programme policy at a regional level, communicating with all stakeholders on training matters. The policy will principally relate to training riders, under 18s, Coaches, Officials and Volunteers as guided by the aims and objectives of the BE Strategy.

The regional committees will set out to deliver a training offering appropriate to the requirements of their region in all areas of the sport. To build on the knowledge that has already been developed in each region, committees will be made up of existing personnel in the current regional roles, who will play a crucial part in ensuring a suitable spread of training in their region. Existing BE Regional Coordinators (RCs) will take up the role of Committee Chairs due to their insight and broad knowledge of the region.

To administrate the Regional Committees and support the delivery of training in the regions, BE will also recruit eight new part time regionally based Regional Development Officers (RDO). These new BE employees will work closely not only with the Regional Committee members, but also the overarching T&E Committee and T&E Team at BE Headquarters, coordinating and administrating training courses in the region.

These developments have been introduced following a lengthy consultation process, during which all regionally based volunteers (including Under 18 Coordinators and Coaches, Regional Training Organisers and Regional Coach Educators) gave their feedback on the proposed regional structure.
