Skills for Business

There are lots of opportunities for employers in Scotland who want to improve the profitability and sustainability of their businesses. They can put staff through Modern Apprenticeships or through short training programmes. Farmers and crofters can also get advice and guidance through the Farm Advisory Service.

You can watch a short video here about Jennifer Hall, a new entrant who's recently started pig farming.
