Teach­ers’ train­ing & CPD courses

Our Regional Educational Consultants can deliver these in their standard format, either on the planned dates shown or on-demand, or we can work with you to tailor any courses to be best suited to your school and specific needs.

“The most important part of the day, for me, was the planning aspects of a farm visit which covered so many curriculum areas. Looking around the farm was very interesting and gave an insight into what could be achieved from a visit.”
