The Dutch PROFARM Programme




In order to develope innovative European policy reform for social farming, the project focuses mainly on teaching students that need to develop into a fully fledged job in the green sector.

During this project we will develop an appropriate learning path, in a Work Based Learning setting offering a educational program within a care farm / social business. With this appropriate learning route we want to prepare them for a position on the labour market. Obtaining a certification, preferably a degree appropriate to the capabilities of the student in question is a very important goal. More information can be found on the PROFARM website – click here and on Facebook

We would like to get together and get to know ‘Your experience, ideas and opportunities’, so we can build a Work Based Learning curriculum.
