Training of young farmers - specialist training in natural and agricultural sciences for rural areas.

The project will create a training plan in RO, BG and SI with support from partners in D and UK, in the field of tertiary level education and distance education of young people and unemployed persons in rural areas. The goal is to train people as farmers. In the three eastern European countries no training programmes have yet been established. Besides, the quality of the existing teachers in the field of agriculture is unsatisfactory. The project should provide the abovementioned groups with access to vocational training.It is planned to develop a modular curriculum, to train teachers and instructors, prepare teaching material in book form, on CD-ROMs, videocassettes and audiocassettes, and to create a website. Besides, regional direct training centres are to be set up in the three countries, where learning success will be monitored and further training provided to instructors. The Ministries for Rural Affairs and the school authorities of the three countries will cooperate. Experiences and training modules from D and UK are to be modified and transferred to the eastern European countries. An exchange programme is to be created for instructors. For the project, suitable farms are to identified in all three countries in which the modules will be tested and the project targets implemented.The overall goal is to create a functioning curriculum and training system for farmers in the three countries.
