Plumpton College has recently tendered for contracts to deliver training – as part of a consortium, and in our own right – under the Defra Rural Development Programme England (RDPE).
So far, the Training for Land Based Businesses Consortium (which the College leads) has gained a national contract to deliver Resource Use Efficiency, Climate Change Adaptation and Mitigation for Agriculture, Horticulture and Forestry. For further information, please contact Don Cranfield on 01273 892031.
Plumpton College has also successfully tendered for further delivery of training under the WineSkills programme for Advanced Technical Skills in Viticulture and Viniculture. For more information, please contact Chris Foss or Jo Cowderoy on 01273 890454.
We are continuing to bid for further contracts, as they are released.
Since the original 400-acre College farm was bought back in 1919, Plumpton College has certainly seen a lot of changes.
