College nets course

A WEST Lothian college is helping to create learning material for an online programme to inspire would-be entrepreneurs with eco-friendly ideas for exploiting the natural and cultural heritage of their areas.

Oatridge College is working with organisations in Northern Ireland, Bulgaria, Romania, Lithuanian, Turkey and Spain, where the project manager – the Lawton language school – is located. The course is expected to be piloted following a meeting of the partners in Tarsus, Turkey, in October.

The development of the Heritage and Natural resources for Green Entrepreneurship (Henge) programme is being supported by the European Commission’s Leonardo da Vinci Transfer of Innovation project.
