Hints and tips on applying

Hello there,

The Farming Connect window is now open (until 27th May)

I know the system is tortuous, and the navigation around Farming connect website to the BOSS website is a nightmare- if it’s any consolation I got rejected in last window for a course as I rushed to get it in !

Anyway, would you like to apply this window for anything? If you do we can take one of 3 options,

  1. You apply as before – a few little changes -see box below.
  2. we can schedule a zoom chat / facetime chat/ tel call  and I can talk you through it,
  3.  if you wish I can do it for you.

If you can reply to my e mail we can go from there, I have attached our latest newsletter and price list, any queries just get in touch.

Make sure you apply for maximum possible!!

OVER 40- 3 courses in total, only 1 can be machinery

UNDER 40 – 5 courses in total, only 1 can be machinery

So- if you have done 1 course since last June application, you will need to deduct that off this windows total, as 3 and 5 courses are in a one year period. If uncertain, contact your FC development officer to check.

You will have until next Feb to complete training applied for now.

Some Late changes – introduced fri April 29th

1.Change to the application page

BOSS have introduced a minimum character count on the application page which was finalised on Friday This means when someone puts the reason why they want to do the training course in the application box they will not be able to move onto the 2nd page until they have reached 350 characters ( including spaces ). This means an average of 50 words will be required.The reason this has been introduced is in the last window in particular a sizeable number of applications were rejected because the word count was insufficient which is a pity.

STB COMMENT – Far too late to make changes! This may be reason you were rejected, but when they say “insufficient” it’s a pity they didn’t tell us what they were expecting !

 2.E learning Health and Safety. We had requested that it was made more prominent on a person’s BOSS account and this work has now been completed. It should now appear on a person’s dashboard.

STB COMMENT – Far too late to make changes! This may be another reason you were rejected because you have to do this if applying for a machinery course.

Our Delivery Model

We can deliver this either as a Face to Face course, or by Remote delivery.

It is Farm focused– you get a spreadsheet that you can use or customise to your own farm business. It is often beneficial for couples to attend, rather than just the person who does the bookkeeping.

FACE 2 FACE TRADITIONAL – relaxed and informal style, questions welcomed throughout.

Pan Wales. We run this for about 4 -8 people in a venue local to you- usually a pub, hotel or community hall. We start about 9.30 with Tea and coffee, and stop for lunch at 12.30. We aim to finish by 3pm. Slight adjustments can be made for school runs etc. we will let you know if a light lunch is provided or you need to bring a packed lunch.

The afternoon session is a practical exercise, work in pairs, where you “do the books” for a beef and sheep farmer called Ivor Goodfield. We then go through the exercise together.

You receive a comprehensive workbook, handouts, and a copy of the slides.

After the course I e mail you a master copy of the spreadsheet

 

REMOTE DELIVERY -VIA ZOOM – relaxed and informal, can do taster session beforehand.

You will need Access to a pc with a webcam or laptop or tablet. If that is not possible, a smart phone will work, but you may want to use a holder of some sort so you don’t have to hold it all the time. Prior to the course we will send you a e mail with the link to the course. On the day of the course you just follow the link. Prior to the course We will also POST out to you a pack, which will contain hard copies of workbooks , handouts etc needed, so you will not have to print out materials, or try and access them on the pc during the course

Session 1  zoom session,10am – 12 noon. Break Off screen 12-1.30 for the Ivor Goodfield activity  as well as a cuppa and lunchbreak etc. Session 2   zoom session, 1.30-3pm where we can go through “homework” address questions, and discuss.
