The Step on Track Programme is a free development programme for 16-19 year-olds . The Programme is sponsored by Sky Sports Racing and is aimed at those from an ethnic background to allow them to explore the vast number of opportunities and exciting career routes in the sport of horseracing .
The Step On Track Programme has been developed in response to the underrepresented groups in British racing and aims to engage young people from diverse backgrounds with Britain ’ s second largest spectator sport , as well as showcasing the varied and exciting career opportunities that it can provide .
In the sports sector , only 5 % of Board members and 3 % of senior leaders are black , Asian or minority ethnic . This is also the case in some parts of British racing and the British Horseracing Authority and Careers in Racing are committed to taking positive action to address this .
Activities are delivered during a week and includes a series of mini virtual lectures , workshops , visits and ongoing career support for individuals that are interested in working in the industry .
