SAOS Training and Development Events

Building Individual Capability

Co-op directors, managers and staff are at the mercy of ever-increasing demands on time, but the need to develop skills and knowledge through effective training really should be a priority. Developing staff capability is one of the most effective ways to improve a co-op’s performance. When a group of co-op people get together for a training event, one of the key benefits is to hear how other co-ops tackle similar issues and, whatever your experience, this access to shared learning is a hugely positive factor and helps with the decisions you make for your own co-op.

As part of a programme of Continuing Professional Development (CPD), farmer directors and staff should regularly update their skills and take the time out to learn from each other, so if you haven’t participated in any training for a number of years, now is the time!

Costs for the courses (paid by your co-op) are:

One-day workshops: SAOS Co-op Members £75 plus VAT Non – Members £150 plus VAT

For smaller co-ops concerned about cost, support is available to cover the training fee.
