New ‘bite-sized’ qualifications to boost the agricultural and food manufacture industries
13 Oct 2021 | Business and Employers
Riseholme College, part of the Lincolnshire Institute of Technology, will deliver new a ‘bite-sized’ course from late autumn with a focus on the use of precision agriculture systems.
“As a partner in the Lincolnshire Institute of Technology, Riseholme College is delighted to be part of this project. Being able to offer short, bite-sized courses which develop higher level skills and the adoption of forward-looking agricultural technologies, gives us the chance to provide tangible commercial benefit through training solutions that really meet the needs of the local and regional employers.
“We are working closely with employers to develop course content that really meets their business needs, so we can deliver a model that is business-friendly and accessible, whilst tackling some of the major challenges being faced within the sector. Sustainable and regenerative farming solutions are a key focus for sector. Being able to introduce the opportunities that the use of new technology and solutions present, through ‘bite-sized’ courses, is an important step in supporting the agricultural sector as a whole.”
