THERE  IS ONE OFFICIAL ONE HERE WITH DEIAN THOMAS ON 8TH APRIL

IMPORTANT- FARMING CONNECT FUNDING ACT NOW! Nov 28deadline

You have to have pre-approval before the training can take place and as the target for processing applications is 2 weeks, we would advise you to think ahead and put in applications promptly.

Dates of training do nothave to be put on form, so please don’t wait for date confirmation before you apply, as you may not get approval in time.

Make your application for funding in time; don’t miss out because you apply too late.

Also as this programme comes to an end in March 2015, any applications for training need to be in by NOV28 th for any training you intend to do up to March 2015. Funding rate currently 80%.

So, if you are interested in doing any training in autumn 2014, or up to march 2014 send in a pre- approval form as soon as possible , to ensure you have funding for the intended course in place.

The new programme will start April 2015, but we have no idea if training will be funded again, or at what rate.

pesticides and grandfathers

pesticides and grandfathers

Were you born before 31st Dec 1964 ?

Do you use Pesticides?

If YES to both, you will be losing your “Grandfather rights” for spraying in November 2015, and it will be an offence to purchase sprays without a certificate of competence.

Yes, we know its a long time away, and yes, we know you won’t want to do it until the very last minute, and yes, we know you don’t want to do it when the sun is shining!

We also know you won’t want to pay full price, so please read on and act !

Farming Connect funding at 80% is available for training up to March 2015

but

You MUST APPLY for PRE-APPROVAL for this training BEFORE

autumn  2014, SO GET THE FORM IN NOW!

You do not have to enter the date of training!!

There is a grandfather rights qualification, but in our opinion, it is not going to be quicker, or easier than the full qualification (overleaf), and we would anticipate many more failures, but if you want to ring up for a chat about it, please do. Easiest option? Send your kids !!!

 

THE QUALIFICATIONS ARE USUALLY REFERRED TO AS PA1, PA2 AND PA6

 

PA1 – SAFE USE OF PESTICIDES – THIS IS MANDATORY

The training is accredited, Lantra Awards Safe Use of Pesticides

TAKES ONE DAY AND IS FOLLOWED (USUALLY ON ANOTHER DAY) BY A CITY AND GUILDS NPTC ON-LINE TEST(1HR)

PA2 – BOOM SPRAYER

The training is accredited, Lantra Awards -Use of Boom sprayer

THE TRAINING IS ONE DAY AND IS FOLLOWED ON ANOTHER DAY BY A CITY AND GUILDS NPTC PRACTICAL ASSESSMENT HALF DAY

 

 

HOW WE DO IT AT HERE AT STB

FULL QUALIFICATION

We have 2 consecutive days training. Day 1 PA1 training. Day 2 is PA2 training. 9am to 5pm.

The following week you will return for an online computer test, you will need to be here for 1-2 hrs. but we can be flexible on time of day etc. You then will be timetabled for your practical assessment 3-4 hrs. when our assessor is here that week. Again we can be a bit flexible over about timings as you are on your own with the assessor for the assessment . THE TRAINER HAS TO BE A DIFFERENT PERSON TO THE ASSESSOR

We charge £695 plus vat per person for PA1 AND PA2, or PA1 AND PA6 .

80% FUNDING AVAILABLE IF ELIGIBLE WITH FARMING CONNECT

That covers 2 accredited training days , workbooks, (you will get certificates of training ) registration with NPTC, the online test, the practical test, use of tractor and sprayer at our Venue (It may be possible to have assessor come to you)

Many providers may only quote you for each chunk, we quote the whole amount to make it easier to claim Farming connect funding. APPLY BEFORE AUTUMN 2014 ! Other providers may be cheaper, but compare like for like, often there is no accredited training, and assessment can be done by in-house salaried staff.

It is a very demanding course, but if you have special requirements, we will accommodate them
