Training and skills development are vital to the success of businesses, especially those which want to attract and keep skilled workers. But finding out where to start and what you need to know can be daunting.
On behalf of the Skills for Farming Group, and with support from Skills Development Scotland, we've developed a toolkit which explains the different types of training and support available. It will help you make informed decisions and find the right solution to your business needs.
The toolkit guides employers through apprenticeships, work placements and farm visits. Areas covered include the different types of apprenticeships, costs, responsibilities, health and safety, insurance, funding, useful contacts, case studies, mentoring and other training.
It was launched on our stand at the Royal Highland Show by Jamie Hepburn, Minister for Business, Fair Work and Skills.
