These short courses by Lantra trainers are perfect if you have experience of some of these skills, but do not yet have a certificate. We have subsidised the prices to make them affordable – and have a special HALF PRICE offer for young farmers, trainees and moorland managers who look after Exmoor’s moorland. This offer also goes out to young people aiming to do moorland management as part of their career.

Hosted at the College Farm Unit, West Somerset Community College, Minehead. Prices include assessment, and a Lantra certificate if you pass.

Moor Skills

The ‘Heart of Exmoor’ scheme has funding to help people living and working in Exmoor National Park to share moorland management skills and knowledge. (Read more about our Moor Skills project...)

We work alongside experienced farmers, local providers, and our partner organisations to deliver this – but what courses would you like to do? Would you like to try moorland management, but need some experience, mentoring or courses? Have you got the skills, and could pass them on to young farmers? Please contact Jason Ball on 01398 322164 to get involved.
