Seven Rural Skills Training Courses by BWMB for Yorkshire & Humberside
11
Jul '09
Thanks to the allocation of £61,000 worth of funding, the skills training arm of the British Wool Marketing Board is now able to offer places on up to seven different courses for a single payment of £46 (including VAT).

The courses cover sheep shearing, crutching, gear maintenance and grinding, wool rolling and handling, sheep dipping certification, hedging and walling, and lambing.

The two-year programme brings a valuable cash boost to the region's rural skills training. The British Wool Marketing Board courses are supported by LandSkills as part of the Rural Development Programme for England (RDPE) which is being funded by the European Agricultural Fund for Rural Development and DEFRA. LandSkills is managed by Lantra on behalf of Yorkshire Forward.

All courses are linked to the nationally recognised BWMB qualifications (now accredited by NPTC and City and Guilds) and are undertaken by qualified instructors.

Project co-ordinator Brian Wilson said the funding has enabled a range of courses to be offered - all of which are relevant to sheep producers. “People in Yorkshire and Humberside have told us what they want and now we can deliver the training.”

Training courses will be held on farms in local communities to enable them to be offered at a time and venue that takes account of work and family commitments.

Places on courses are limited so applications should be made as soon as possible.
