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