JOIN OUR MISSION
The Farmer Jones Academy are creating opportunities for youngsters at risk of not reaching a positive destination.
We offer young people the opportunity to gain a better knowledge and hands on experience of the Agriculture, Food and Drink industry. We then mix this with our business courses where we promote entrepreneurship and fundamental marketing skills within farming, and we have a unique and impactful service to offer to young people within Scotland.
The key objective is to create a joined-up approach between young people, schools, further education and local businesses.
Farming Hubs that will give vulnerable youth, unemployed youth and schools pupils a safe space to learn, create and express themselves.
Developing croft and commerce projects that allow youngsters to take ownership of projects, reaping the rewards for their hard work and efforts.
Courses designed to give young people fundamental business and entrepreneurial skills.
Giving young people an e-platform to sell their products and sample the world of e-commerce.
Opportunities for young people to learn the basics on exporting goods internationally.
Link young people with local businesses and facilitate mentorship programs.
Training designed to build up the confidence and self-esteem of our young people.
Integration and mentorship programs for Primary pupils going into Secondary Education
