The Farmer Network Training Voucher Scheme
The Farmer Network has developed a £200 training voucher scheme to help members afford the cost of technical training and certificates of competence. Member’s businesses are entitled to one voucher per year and are used for a wide range of training courses, but particularly for the safe use of pesticides, for driving a trailer on the road (B&E) and Telehandler training. These certificates are legal requirements but are particularly expensive for smaller family farms to fund without financial assistance. The training vouchers are also used for a range of animal husbandry courses such as cattle Artificial Insemination and sheep shearing.
