7th March 2003




If you would like to train for a career in the countryside, a visit to the open day at the Lincolnshire School of Agriculture this Saturday (8th March) will tell you all you need to know.


Countryside Management, Forestry, Agriculture and Horticulture are just some of the First Diploma, National Diploma and apprenticeship courses you can find out more about.


The day will begin at 9.15 am with registration and refreshments in the conference hall at Riseholme Park.  Visitors will be given an official welcome to the campus followed by guided tours of the campus and individual, informal interviews.  The open day finishes around 12.30 pm.


Tutors from each course will be available throughout the morning to answer any questions you may have about the courses, accommodation, fees, travel, teaching facilities or other queries.


Visitors will also be given a tour of the new £2 million purpose-built Rural Science Centre which was opened recently by the Minister for Animal Welfare, Elliot Morley MP.


“The open day allows visitors to find out more about the courses on offer and to take a look at the campus facilities,” said Robena French, event co-ordinator.  “The days are designed to be informal and relaxed so guests enjoy their visit.”


Further education open days at the Lincolnshire School of Agriculture are held each month.  If you would like to attend this or any of the future open days please contact Student Admissions on 01400 275573.
