The training department secured funding from the RDPE LANDSKILLS programme for England to deliver much needed training into the poultry sector in a number of regions of the UK.
We have delivered training to producers countrywide within the broiler, egg layer, turkey and duck sectors.
We have also developed training courses for developing sectors such as smallholders.
Training for Vets
We have recently delivered a series of Backyard Poultry CPD courses in Yorkshire for veterinary surgeons with no previous expertise in poultry which have been very successful. These will be continued in other parts of the UK.
We have recognised that there is a need for specialised management training both within veterinary practices and other businesses.
By working with specialist organisations including the University of York Business School we have been able to deliver high quality courses.
The department also intends to create and co-ordinate training courses in other areas of the livestock sector in the future, utilising expertise within the different departments of the practice.
