The Scottish Crofting Federation is pleased to announce the appointment of a partnership that will run their Crofting Skills Training Programme 2013 – 2015 throughout the Crofting Counties. Tina Hartley and Lucy Beattie will be based in Ullapool and aim to provide a wide range of entry level and crofting skills based courses. Tina and Lucy have a robust background both in Agriculture and Business management and are looking forward to the exciting challenge of developing and delivering the programme.
The courses are aimed at aspiring, new and existing crofters and small holders and are funded with support from the Scottish Government’s Skills Development Scheme and HIE. The training courses are aimed at people interested in developing knowledge and skills in crofting, both for new entrants and to support existing crofters in best practice and improving performance.
