TRAINING FOR WORK IN THE COUNTRYSIDE

 

The Lincolnshire School of Agriculture will open its doors this Wednesday afternoon (26th June) to tell the public about training courses for work in the countryside.

 

The open day, which commences with light refreshments at 1.15pm, will take place in the conference hall at Riseholme Park. 

 

Training for full-time, part-time and apprenticeship courses in rural subject areas such as Agriculture, Forestry, Horticulture, Countryside Management, Animal Care and Horse Management will be discussed during the afternoon.

 

Visitors are invited to view student work, join tours of the campus and have informal interviews with the tutors to discuss the various training options available.

 

“It’s all very informal,” said a university spokesperson. “Visitors can talk to tutors about our courses and training options and take a look at the facilities.” 

 

If you would like to find out more about courses at the Lincolnshire School of Agriculture or come to the open day, please contact Riseholme Park on 01522 522252.
