JETS provides a range of career development support to aid professional jockeys.
JETS works with jockeys to make them aware of their strengths, attributes and transferable skills from race riding to ensure they have successful second careers regardless of the circumstances in which they retire from riding.
JETS works with jockeys from the very start of their career through its Personal Development Plans which cover a range of key personal and professional areas to ensure each jockey reaches their potential and is well prepared for their lives ahead. JETS also provides financial support to help jockeys with training courses and further education as well as career advice and guidance.
Recently, JETS has produced a series of Jockey Matters films to help educate and signpost support for jockeys in key areas of welfare including Mental Health, Nutrition, Injury Rehabilitation and Concussion.
JETS also runs its ‘Friends of JETS’ scheme whereby companies can officially link to the charity and offer career support to jockeys in the form of taster days, career guidance and other opportunities.
