Trade Awareness Course
28th & 29th May 2014

Following the very successful Trade Awareness Course of March 2011 we will run another course in Scotland for the benefit of employees of member companies. This will be a two day residential course on 23rd & 24th May run in Central Scotland modelled on the same format run as last year. The leaflet accompanying this letter gives details and costs of the course. A full programme with timings and accommodation details will be sent to all those attending.

The maximum number is limited to two employees per company as a very important part of the course is networking with people from other companies and associated industries. This course is designed for employees who ideally have an understanding of their business (one to two years experience) and is not an induction for new recruits.

The support and positive feed-back we received  from the first course in Scotland has given us the confidence to run another course in 2012.

“Having no real previous experience in the agricultural industry and stepping in to my new role it helped give me an insight as to what happens to the raw materials at the consumer end of the supply chain. It was a good opportunity to speak with fellow colleagues within the industry and to further my awareness of the trade”.

“The on-site visits provided a detailed overview of the animal feed business. We were taken through the various stages of the supply chain – importing raw materials at KGV, making the compound feed mix at Davidson Bros. Shotts, then to a dairy farm. The second day gave us a great insight the Scotch Whisky Industry”.

“I would highly recommend anyone who is starting out in the trade to attend one of these courses. I now have a broader picture of the animal feed trade and can use the knowledge gained from the SCTA course in my day to day role”.

We in Scotland have a unique supply chain with our feed and whisky industries and this course gives employees a great opportunity to see these in operation.  

The Bristol courses have always been oversubscribed and as there is a ceiling of 20 people on this course I would ask you to send off the booking form promptly as it will be on a first come basis. If you require further information please contact me as per the details on the Booking Form.
