Continue to Learn 2019 breaking education records

11.08am 15th January 2019 - BTME

Continue to Learn is BIGGA’s annual education programme and takes place each year during the week of BTME.

Beginning on Sunday 19 January, among the world class education on offer will be a range of conferences, forums, workshops and seminars, all intended to provide BIGGA members with the tools they need to forge successful careers and to improve the standards of the golf courses they work at.

This year 3,740 educational places were on offer, marking an increase of around 1,000 on 2018 and leading Continue to Learn 2019 to be recognised as the largest programme of education for the turf management industry ever hosted in Europe.

Bookings for the event closed on Friday 11 January, although there are a number of free-to-attend events that can still be accessed, and BIGGA has revealed that more than 2,583 places have been booked – an increase of 134 on the previous year.

Sami Strutt, head of member development at BIGGA, said: “We’re highly delighted with the education sales figures.  Extending the programme to include the new Deputies’ Conference and two Forums on Ecology and Links golf courses has proven to be successful. It’s shaping up to be another fantastic Continue to Learn at BTME.”

Twenty-eight seminars completely sold out, from a total of 80 overall, with new events for 2019 including the Deputies’ Conference, the Ecology and Environment Forum sponsored by Aquatrols and the Links Forum sponsored by Sherriff Amenity.
