Last updated at 15:22, Friday, 21 October 2011
A rural leadership project has been launched in Cumbria.
The Scottish Agricultural College (SAC) is looking for recruits to join its Cumbria Rural Leadership Programme.
Successful applicants from farming, forestry and food will have the chance to sharpen their business, communication and leadership skills and see at first hand how government works in Westminster and Brussels.
Across 12 days between next month and March next year, activities will include workshops, inspirational speakers, individual coaching sessions, media training, the opportunity to build new contacts and networks and expert support in developing a personal action plan.
Emily Maclean from SAC said: “For many participants the best part may be meeting and developing business relationships with a range of like-minded people.”
More details will be available at two Rural Skills Cumbria information events on October 27 from 1pm to 3pm at Lane Farm, Crooklands and from 7pm to 9pm at The Shepherds Inn, Rosehill, Carlisle.
To book your place at an information event or for details, contact Emily Maclean on 01539 566987 or firstname.lastname@example.org
