Applications are now being accepted for next year’s Global Small-scale Postharvest E-learning Program. The postharvest training program being launched in January 2014 by The Postharvest Education Foundation will be offered for up to 50 young horticultural professionals currently working in developing countries over a period of 14 months during 2014-15. Training activities will include a wide assortment of reading, e-learning and fieldwork assignments to be undertaken by each trainee in their home country. Participants can choose the crops they are most interested in, and focus on the technologies most suitable for their region. A registration fee of $600 will be charged for the 2014 training program, with a 50% discount available for those located in less developed countries. PEF will supply all the required training materials and provide participants with weekly online interactive sessions, feedback and mentoring. Priority will be given to those trainees who have the approval or permission of their supervisor, and it should be understood prior to applying that no financial compensation will be provided for the trainee’s time away from work.
