As a result, we have a team of training co-ordinators and research staff with specialist knowledge of the industry, who apply their expertise to a number of rural development projects and initiatives. We also work with other land-based colleges and training providers to ensure that our training opportunities are offered at venues across the region, providing first-hand specialist knowledge and technical support where it matters. These companies and organisations form a vital part of our network, ensuring that we have up-to-date knowledge of the training and research requirements of our industry.
The Rural Business School operates from the two Duchy College sites at Stoke Climsland and Rosewarne in Cornwall. The sites offer superb teaching, training and conference facilities in accessible yet rural surroundings attached to working farms. We are committed to putting the learner and sustainable, healthy advancement of rural business first and are regularly audited through both our project funders and as part of Cornwall College Group through Ofsted.
