The South West Peak Fresh Start Uplands Academy is providing business training to the next generation of farmers and landowners in the South West Peak. This program continues to offer tailored packages consisting of 30 hours of business-focused training to 20 enthusiastic individuals living in communities throughout the South West Peak.
The Fresh Start Land Enterprise Centre (FSLEC) is a national community interest company focusing on the farming community. It aims to equip aspiring landowners and farmers with the key knowledge, understanding and skills needed to create and run successful land-based businesses.
Uplands Academy participants follow a varied programme designed to provide an introduction to the many possibilities and facets of getting started in business and how to make their dreams sustainable.
These training sessions are delivered by those who know the industry best; farmers, landowners, land agents, bankers, agricultural consultants, accountants and rural surveyors.
“The Academy has empowered me to get on with my life and has totally changed my attitude to business and what I can do for myself and family.”
Co-operate with people at work in the countryside. For example, keep out of the way when farm animals are being gathered or moved and follow directions from the farmer.
