We want to hear from you!
- Young people in North Devon who would like to take a farming apprenticeship.
- Farmers and other land managers in Exmoor National Park keen to show young trainees the skills they need to manage moorland.
- Exmoor Moorland Landscape Partnership is running a new project for 2011 with farmers who wish to be ‘Moorland Tutors’ and uniquely, in Exmoor National Park, we also have funds to help to pay the wages of 3 Exmoor Moorland Apprentices.
- The level 3 apprenticeships are run by West Somerset Community College at Minehead, which has a modern farm facility at College Farm, Minehead. The course combines 4 days per week on the farm and 1 day per week at college. Host farms would employ and train their student during the apprenticeship period of 22 months.
