FARMING CONNECT WINDOW 16 OPEN NOW

Have a look at the courses available, APPLYING now WILL MEAN THAT YOU WILL BE APPROVED END OF NOVEMBER. THEN YOU HAVE TILL NEXT AUGUST TO COMPLETE TRAINING.

As things covid wise are changing constantly, we are looking to deliver business courses remotely as an option.

key message – APPLY NOW- We will sort out HOW we get them delivered after ! check out our newsletter and future delivery plans

Anyone applying now will be approved at the end of November .This means they will have until August 2021 to complete their training.

This means we have the summer ahead for outdoor courses, and we know the virus doesn’t like heat and fresh air. Hopefully there will be many more improvements in the situation by then, which will give us the ability to return to safe face to face training. But we will be able to offer the business courses as a  Remote option then as well.

So to anyone applying now, it looks likely they will have the option of choosing remote or face to face options, so the message from us is :

APPLY NOW – we will work something out !

All business courses

Our preference is still to run face to face courses, with all covid measures in place,  where possible, but given the new rise in cases, we are developing remote delivery strategies as a realistic option.

What would be useful then when you are approved is to establish your preferences , which will we do in our initial contact.

The advantages of remote are of course that geography doesn’t matter, and we do not have to restrict numbers on courses, we can give a wider availability of dates, we may offer more on weekends! On a separate note we are investing is Instructor development, and are working towards getting a Welsh first language Instructor in machinery ,based in North Wales.

Business coursesall one day duration

Face to face we run them 9.30 to 3.30 which suits school runs etc. with smaller numbers we will be able to adjust timings to suit the needs of the group.

Half and Half  If face to face is possible next year, we are already planning the use of pre course work of things that take time in a group situation such as questionaires activities, case studies etc, so we can cut down the length of time of the face to face encounter as it were, effectively making the course half a day face to face and half a day self study, which can be an effective compromise. We will call these half and half courses!

Remote- Sitting in front of a screen from 9.30 to 3.30 with half hour for lunch we feel is a bridge too far. We envisage holding a 2 hour session in the morning, say 9.30-11.30, followed by a gap where you so some “work” on what we have covered in that session, followed by another session starting at 1. 30 that day. We feel that is better to avoid screen fatigue.

  • We will introduce as much interaction as possible during screen time, so you still benefit from the group experience.
  • I have always been a firm believer that you can learn a lot from each other.
  • I will be happy to take questions just as I do in face to face sessions.

We will not be moving to a fully digital impersonal experience.
