Future Roots Farm - Future Farmers

Future Farmers is a vocational training course for 14-21 year olds who have an interest in farming, but who find school challenging. Based on a City & Guilds Award in Land-based Operations, Future Farmers is a one- or two-year training course that provides all the basics for a career in agriculture, horticulture or animal care. The programme is an opportunity to gain an accredited qualification for the hardest to reach young people who are at risk of permanent exclusion from the education system (pre-NEET) due to behavioural, emotional and social difficulties as well as those with special educational needs.
