The Skills Programme is open to all and encourages individuals, businesses, trainers and training providers within the rural sector to become involved.
Funded through the Rural Development Programme for England (RDPE), the Skills Programme (South West Region) is delivered by a partnership led by Duchy College Rural Business School with the Royal Agricultural College and Lantra.
