Come and learn at Bath City Farm
Bathscape is working in partnership with Bath City Farm to deliver accredited training.
We are running free 6 week courses for 16-25 year olds who are not in employment, education or training.
By joining one of our courses you will learn practical skills that count towards an award and will demonstrate your experience, interest and abilities when applying for jobs, apprenticeships and training.
Bath City Farm is now an AQA Unit Award Scheme Centre. AQA are an examining board who run many GCSE and A Level schemes, and are widely recognised by employers and training facilities. By working with us at the Farm, you can now achieve a Unit Award, which certifies your skills in areas like animal care, horticulture and conservation. This is a way to demonstrate your experience, interest and abilities when applying for jobs, apprenticeships, training and more.
We have designed our units to work for you, which means the work you do at the Farm will count towards your Award, along with informal assessments from your group leader*, and the chance to create work that shows your understanding. You will be supported through every step of the award.
Every certificate will include details of what you’ve achieved. You can register with us once a year, and there is no limit on how many Units you can take, or how many certificates you can get after you have registered.
We are starting in January 2020 with Introduction to Animal Care.
*There may occasionally be tutors from Bath college to work with your group, but your ‘tutor’ will be your normal group leader.
For more information and to book a place email Mo at the Farm or call 01225 481 269.
This programme is aimed at 16-25 year olds not in employment, education or training. If that’s not you, there are opportunities to learn new practical skills with Bathscape by joining our Community Action for Nature Group – this Group works by sharing skills and will run formal training when there is demand for it.
