Coldharbour Mill launches Rural Skills Training Programme

Rural Skills Training Programme

Coldharbour Mill is delighted to announce we will be continuing our Rural Skills Programme. Our Rural Skill Programme has been running throughout 2021 and which will help candidates learn new rural work skills including estate, countryside and land management along with practical work-based skills which trainees will be able to take on into employment. They will also have the opportunity to learn wider heritage attraction skills.

The Programme will offer free training opportunities for unemployed or inactive people who are looking to learn new skill and improve their employability. The programme is fully funded by the European Social Fun (ESF) and the Education and Skills Funding Agency, who are working with Petroc in Devon and Somerset to deliver the funding.

The goal of the programme is to aid unemployed or inactive people to gain new skills and move into work, but trainees will also be helping Coldharbour Mill improve and manage our community space as part of our Project Splash! There will be two rounds of the programme, each running for 1-day a week for 3 months starting from January. There will also be opportunities to join Museum & Heritage Attraction training which will focus on administration, Marketing, Retail and Customer Service skills.
