Continue to Learn 2017
Continue to Learn is the educational part of the BIGGA Turf Management Exhibition (BTME) which is held in Harrogate in January every year. There are events suitable for all levels of employees within the greenkeeping industry, from apprentices all the way through to golf club owners.
Events are split into Workshops, Focus on Sessions, Career Development Sessions and Seminars.
A great deal of time has been spent compiling the educational programme. Feedback from members and attendees has been taken into consideration and a lot of the programme has been voted for by our members.
If you require any further information regarding Continue to Learn or BTME, please do not hesitate to contact the Learning & Development department on 01347 833800 option 3 or email email@example.com
