Rural business training scheme announced

A £20 million fund for business training to help around 90,000 people who are running or working in rural firms has been announced by Environment Secretary Owen Paterson. A range of training courses will be open to businesses in the agriculture, horticulture, forestry, tourism and traditional rural skills sectors, and topics covered will include management, market opportunities and IT. Defra’s Rural Development Programme for England will subsidise 70% of the cost of the courses, with individuals and employers responsible for the remaining amount.
