Developing Skills and Understanding
Please note that Easter Anguston Farm is temporarily closed from the 13th of February to the 4th of March 2018 (estimated) due to construction work. We will be open 7 days a week from the 30th of March 2018 onwards. Apologies for any inconvenience.
Easter Anguston aims to provide meaningful and individualised training placements to adults with learning difficulties and other additional support needs. Trainees are supported by a skilled and experienced staff team to learn and to develop their knowledge and understanding of working in an agricultural and retail setting.
Strong emphasis is placed on developing personal, social, vocational, and land-based skills. Trainees work towards certificates in various areas including horticulture, livestock, arable farming, rural skills, catering, conservation and readiness for employment. Each trainee has a person-centred, outcome-focused training support plan which is collaboratively written and reviewed with a dedicated key worker.
