Posted 12 June 2003A LEARNING REVOLUTION taking place within the UK poultry industry will provide the focus for the report of the 11th Temperton Fellow next week.
Dr Graham Scott, Senior Lecturer at Harper Adams University College, Shropshire, will become the 11th Temperton Fellow on Monday, June 16, 2003. His report, entitled ‘The Learning Revolution – Distance Learning and its Application to a Global Poultry Industry’ will consider training issues from a UK perspective.
Dr Scott said: “As the poultry industry, particularly poultry meat production and supply, become globalised, the need for training within the industry becomes international.
“In the UK, the Government have recognised the need for training, adult education and lifelong learning. The green paper recognises and outlines provision to meet the needs for the future and as a supplier of education in the poultry sector; Harper Adams is committed to the development of distance learning and work-place training.”
Dr Scott added that his report would consider the issues and the response within the UK.
