The FLO Producer Support Unit in conjunction with the Association for Fairness in trade (AFIT) is pleased to invite representatives of your Small Farmer Organisation, Joint Body and Workers Committee to our Second Spring School.

The purpose of the Spring School is to build on the basic regional training workshops AFIT and FLO PSR have been running in the provinces over the last two years. For this reason, we are encouraging application from participants who attended one of these workshops.

The Spring School will run 4 courses concurrently, to deepen learning from the basic regional training workshop. You will have to choose one course to specialise in:

  1. Fairtrade Premium and Project management
  2. Leadership Training
  3. Workers Right’s, Labour Law and Fairtrade
  4. Climate Change

There are only 60 places available so paid-up AFIT members will be given preference and only 2 places will be available per farm unless additional places become available.

Unfortunately, due to resource constraints training will be conducted mostly in English but we will be able to make training materials available in Afrikaans if requested on your application form. Facilitators will also try to assist with language as far as possible.
