If you are an agricultural business based in Harrogate and need to brush up on your bookkeeping and management skills, join our fully funded two-day UK Rural Skills accredited course on 11-12 February 2022.

What does the course deliver?

Delivered by Christine Thompson of ABT, this workshop provides an opportunity for those who undertake their own farm business financial recording and record keeping to update and review their current skills and processes. The course is run over two days and is module based, each with a short open book assessment. The first module provides an update on industry news and the last module entitled “The Choice Is Yours” covers any office based topics previously requested by attendees. It includes practical, detailed exercises to enhance existing skills.

The course will help you to:

  • understand farm financial recording procedures
  • understand the benefits of financial recording systems
  • prepare essential management information in readiness for future industry changes.
