Plumpton College is committed to supporting our local community and the wider land based sector during these unprecedented times.
We are working with our partner network to provide a central source of useful information and advice on the issues impacting the sector as a result of the coronavirus outbreak, and will regularly update and add information to this page as it becomes available.
If you're a business, organisation or sector body, who has relevant information that you feel would be beneficial, please contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
We have a large and far reaching network and even if we are unable to help, we'll certainly have a connection to someone who can.
If you're a business or an individual in need of support or guidance, or would like to speak to us about any aspect of training or workforce development, please fill in our enquiry form below, and we'll get back to you as soon as we possibly can.
We have been made aware that there is a high rate of reports from online scams during the coronavirus pandemic. Please be vigilant for anything unusual you may see on social media platforms, emails, text or WhatsApp messages, fake websites and even phone calls.
To help members of the public protect themselves from becoming a victim of fraud, Cifas, the UK’s fraud prevention service, is advising:
Please keep an eye out for the following email about free school meals from unknown email addresses, as this is scam and could be worded as follows:
"As schools will be closing, if you're entitled to free school meals, please send your bank details and we'll make sure you're supported".
We can confirm that this is a scam email and is not official. We urge parents that if you receive any emails like this, please do not respond and delete it immediately.
Please fill in our enquiry form with your specific query.
At Plumpton College we specialise in a broad range of land-based apprenticeship programmes.
At Plumpton, we want to take the headache out of recruiting apprentices by providing a service designed to support you in finding the right talent for your business.
Do you have a vacancy? - part time, seasonal or full time that isn't an apprenticeship that we can promote to our network?
We can offer bespoke training courses, tailored to your organisation.
