Agri-Environment Training Scheme

Teagasc Wicklow/Carlow/Wexford is hosting walk-in clinics at all our offices on Wednesday 18th and Thursday 19th May 2022 to help farmers apply for the new AETS scheme: https://www.gov.ie/en/service/30bf5-agri-environment-training-scheme-aets/

 What is AETS?

A voluntary 1-day training course with an indoor and outdoor session that aims to:

  • Help farmers prepare for the new Agri-Environment scheme AECM (Agri Environment Climate Measures).
  • Train farmers in environmental practices and standards.
  • Promote awareness of the importance of farm safety.

Participating farmers are paid €156 for attending and the course is open to all BPS participants

To make applying for a course as easy as possible we are holding drop-in clinics on in our offices at:

  • Enniscorthy                   Wednesday & Thursday 18th & 19th May

  2. Bring in a copy of your bank statement, which clearly shows your name, and address with bank details for the account that your BPS is paid into - this is to ensure you receive payment for course attendance.
