Learner welfare is essential and involves both the host farmer and Teagasc. Together they can support the wellbeing of the learner and help build resilience and a sense of community.
Should a host farmer become aware of an issue with the wellbeing of a learner, they should be proactive and contact the PLP Officer. The PLP Officer will support the learner and can provide them with contact details for professional help, should it be requested.
Host farmers should be aware of the additional support Teagasc can offer to learners experiencing wellbeing or ill health issues and contact the PLP officer for additional information.
