We are working in partnership with Ankara Development Agency, DGRV (German Cooperative and Raiffeisen Confederation) and Legacoop in Italy to increase sustainable rural development in Turkey. The College is playing a key role in developing innovative new training that will encourage more co-op start-ups and also strengthen existing co-ops. 

The College's long-term and wide-ranging experience of developing training programmes and resources will be showcased through "train the trainer" sessions with people working within the co-operative movement in Turkey to ensure that best practice is widely shared, making them better able to respond to the needs of the sector.
