BRS Management Academy
The British Racing School have teamed up with The Peplow Group to provide meaningful, results driven management training, specific to the racing industry. In its fifth year, the Academy has proved to be a huge success delivering measureable results.
Why invest in the Academy?
Racing faces some significant challenges. These will require a positive and sustained response from all parts of the Industry. Increasing the effectiveness of management is critical to the success of this response.
This programme has shown already that it can make a significant contribution to meeting these challenges.
Who should attend?
This programme will suit those who need to develop their management and leadership skills and aspire to senior roles within your organisation. Careful selection of candidates ensures that their organisation gains maximum benefit from the programme. Several clients have pointed out that the investment in the programme is often less than the cost of recruiting a replacement and good staff need to be retained, not lost to competitors.
"I have thoroughly enjoyed the Academy and am extremely grateful for being given the opportunity to study for the qualification. I will continue to endeavour to apply what I have learnt and would highly recommend the Course to anyone keen to develop their management and leadership skills."

I came on the course primarily to become a better manager and this course has definitely helped improve this."

What makes this offer different?
The programme is restricted to those working in racing so that the discussions and programme are placed in the context of the issues that face racing. The partnership with The British Racing Schools ensures members of the Peplow team are continually updated on the issues that face racing and the attitudes and politics which management are confronted with.
Within the Academy framework we offer choice. Each individual, having been assessed, follows their own individual development plan. Individuals are therefore able to plan, choose and commit to various activities that are designed to meet their exact individual needs. For many there will be a requirement for new ideas, tools or techniques. For others, there will be a need for coaching and support to make best use of new knowledge and to help them become more effective.
Employment costs typically range from 25 - 50% of your business expenditure and people power is the key driver to meeting your business objectives.
Investment in employees is essential in order to build and retain the best team and to achieve specified goals.

"As an indication of how positive she feels about the Course, she had already shared the results of her assessments and confirmed a very positive view of the year. Our reservations that it may be either too JCR or even too racing proved unfounded and the benefits of immediate relevance have been unlocked. She has enjoyed being part of the group and it has given her an independent network of peers which is a further benefit to the organisation."
Feedback from an Employer of a 2012 Graduate
The Academy first ran 5 years ago for Jockey Club Racecourses. Paul Fisher, Group Managing Director of JCR speaks very highly of the course which has now become integrated into the JCR Management Training Structure.
"We have been delighted with this programme. There has been a noticeable improvement in performance in all those who have taken part and already a number have gained promotion within the Group. It is also pleasing to see how their performance has helped others who work with them to improve." Paul Fisher, Group Managing Director of Jockey Club Racecourses
