WACE - Pony Club in Schools

About

An endorsed program is a significant learning program that has been developed for senior secondary students. The program may have been developed by the School Curriculum and Standards Authority, or it may have been developed by a private provider or a school and subsequently endorsed by the Authority.

Each endorsed program consists of a series of lessons, classes and/or activities designed to lead to the achievement of a common goal or set of learning outcomes. Endorsed programs can be delivered as part of the school curriculum or as extra-curricular activities.

All endorsed programs successfully completed and reported to the Authority

  • are listed on the student’s Statement of Results
  • may contribute towards the breadth-and-depth requirement of the WACE
  • may contribute towards the C grade requirement of the WACE.

Each endorsed program is allocated one, two, three or four unit equivalents. A student who will graduate in 2016 and beyond will be able to count a maximum of 4 unit equivalents from endorsed programs, two in Year 11 and two in Year 12.

PCA Efficiency Standards C, K, C*, B, H & A Certificates along with our Preliminary and Level 1 Coaching programs have been endorsed by The School Curriculum and Standards Authority as Provider Developed Programs.

For more information on the Endorsed Programs visit The School Curriculum and Standards Authority website. 

How do I enroll in an Endorsed Program?

Discuss first with your School Principal or Curriculum Officer. Schools enroll registered students in endorsed programs and report achievement to the Council through electronic data transfer.
Schools need to submit Endorsed Program enrollment forms to the School Curriculum and Standard Authority.

How do I submit my Results?

On successful completion of a program, the student is required to present the award, certificate or examination report to the school as evidence of achievement. 
It is the responsibility of the school to validate the achievement and keep a copy of the evidence for all endorsed programs reported to the Council.
Sports CONNECT

About

Sports CONNECT is an initiative of the Australian Sports Commission. It is about creating inclusive sporting options and pathways for people with disabilities. There are currently 30 national sports organisations participating in Sports CONNECT projects.
Sports CONNECT involves a range of initiatives to increase opportunities for people with disabilities to participate in sport. Its two main focus areas are:
· creating athlete pathways for people with a disability · breaking down the barriers within disability and non-disability specific sport structures for
people with a disability.

The philosophy underpinning the RDAA and PCA joint project was that both organisations would “join hands” to develop a relevant and simple disability action plan that would allow people with a disability to identify the best entry point into Equestrian Sport and participate in programs best suited to their needs.
It was recognised that some participants may start riding with RDA, move to PCA and then back to RDA allowing them to participate in all facets of regular Pony Club rally activities as well as compete at local through to International level in RDA events. Some riders with disabilities participate in Pony Club and have no initial exposure to an RDA program.

Exemption Application

PCA Application for exemption by a Rider with a Disability – How does it work?
Some Pony Club rules and regulations may prevent riders with a disability from competing on a level playing field. An Exemption System has been created which will uphold the values of fair play and safety for the rider and the horse. If a rider would like to apply for Exemption consideration they
need to do the following:
1. Complete a “Pony Club Australia Application for Exemption with a Disability”
2. Provide supporting evidence/documentation as requested
3. Return the document with $25 administration fee to their Pony Club State/Territory office
4. Application will be forwarded to nominated Exemption Committee (see Exemption Application Guidelines and Terms of Reference)
5. Once a decision is made and application is approved an Exemption Card (valid for 2 years) is prepared and sent to the rider with a letter of explanation which can be forwarded to Organising Committees of Competitions, Pony Club DC etc to clarify the use of Exemption Card on behalf of the applicant.
