Could the future of farming be Cornish?

Duchy College at Stoke Climsland is looking to take on 16 apprentices as part of a joint scheme to work here and in Europe, with industry experts Spearhead International.

The programme will cover everything from crops and machinery to speaking a new language.

Mark Williams who is in charge of work based learning: "This is offering sixteen young people the opportunity of jobs in the industry, with the potential of continuing to develop their skills and careers in one of the largest farming businesses in Europe.

He added that farming is vital to Cornwall: "Local food production, local supply, local resourcing, traceability of food, welfare of animals is very, very important today to the consumer and we are increasingly adapting our training provision to meet those needs."
