The deadline to apply for the College of Agriculture, Food and Rural Enterprise (CAFRE) Agricultural Business Operations Level II Certificate (2020-2021) is fast approaching.
Course Manager, Kenneth Johnston said that CAFRE has already received a high level of interest and he would encourage anyone interested in applying for the course to make sure that they did not miss the closing date for applications on July 17th.
Mr Johnston said: "The training will be delivered over 20 weeks from October 2020 to the end of February 2021. The course is usually available at the three CAFRE Campus locations and while face-to-face delivery is the preferred option, but it can only be delivered where space is available to allow social distancing in line with Government guidelines. The College is currently looking at ways to deliver the course safely and classes in beef, sheep and dairying will be offered.
"Of the 2019/20 students, 100 per cent were satisfied with the course and felt they had gained knowledge from participating in the course and would recommend the course to others. They also felt the course will be of benefit to them when running their farm business.”
A place on a course can be secured by visiting the CAFRE website.The cost of the course is £150.
The CAFRE Agricultural Business Operations (Level II Certificate) qualification meets the agricultural training eligibility requirements for the Young Farmers’ Payment/Regional Reserve Scheme.
