The NPA in Local Food Production at SCQF level 6 gives learners the opportunity to explore how the food they eat is produced and to contrast global food markets with food produced and consumed locally. They will also have the opportunity to develop practical skills in Horticulture, and to explore the steps involved in taking a primary food product to market.

The course covers routes to market, product development, added value, marketing, and legal requirements, and explores issues surrounding local and global food production and consumption, environmental issues, food security and sustainability.

This course was developed with Community Renewal Funding.
