Training and Development

FCN offers a suite of training that can be delivered to farmers, corporate partners and other organisations across the agricultural sector.

Our training is unique – it is informed by our work supporting farming families, making it truly tailored for the agricultural sector. We understand the pressures and stressors often associated with farming. Our training is positive and designed to help you plan for the future in a proactive way and support yourself and the people around you.

FCN is an Accredited Provider with The CPD Group, recognising our knowledge and experience in this space.
