The new skills development programme was launched yesterday at the Winter Fair. To access 80 % funding for training there are several steps to complete, so we have attached a quick guide.
You need to have registered with Farming Connect since October 2015. You will need to complete a PDP (Personal Development Plan) online, and then apply for funding online in the January window 4th to 29th Jan.
Simply The best are going to run “clinics” throughout Jan, so we can assist you with your PDP, and run through the free online courses, and assist your online application.
You can only attend training once funding is approved, which is not automatic, so training courses will only be available from Feb on.
