This qualification reflects the role of persons who are responsible for organising their own work, leading others and planning for and carrying out tasks of complex and non-routine functions. Work responsibilities are undertaken within the regulatory and integrity services operations in racing. In addition, stewards supervise the conduct of race meetings, and investigate incidents and potential non-compliance issues, as well as arbitrating and awarding penalties under the principles of administrative law.
Employees with this qualification need to be confident about moving in close proximity to racing horses or greyhounds and to be able to identify safe and unsafe methods of handling by others, as well as recognising approved and non-approved racing gear and equipment and legal and illegal racing tactics.
An extensive knowledge of the rules of racing, racing protocols, animal welfare and duty of care requirements is also considered essential. The candidate is required to solve unpredictable problems by the analysis and evaluation of information and demonstrate broad knowledge in a variety of contexts.
