The Advanced Training Partnership in Sustainable and Efficient Food Production has several distance learning modules starting this May:
Low Input Ruminant Production
Ruminant Gut Microbiology
Resource Efficient Farming
Genetics and Genomics
Anaerobic Digestion (AD)
Agriculture and Society
The training is designed to be as accessible as possible, particularly for those in full time employment.
Each topic comprises a 12-14 week distance learning module worth 20 credits which can be taken for your own continuing professional development or interest; or built towards a postgraduate qualification. The research elements of the qualifications are carried out in your work place with regular academic supervision.
The training is web-based which means that as long as you have access to a reasonable broadband connection (i.e. are able to stream videos such as on YouTube), you can study where and when best suits you. Learning material includes podcast lectures, e-group projects, guided reading, interactive workbooks and discussion forums, as well as assignments and e-tutorials.
