Hi from the friendly International Agriculture team of Vision College!
It is an honour to be able to offer this course teaching students from overseas about dairy farming in New Zealand. Here at the Hamilton campus, we offer a Certificate in Primary Industries Level 2, where students will gain experience in fencing, riding motorcycles, driving tractors and of course milking cows along side a bunch of other vital farm work skills!
To give the students a great experience studying here at Vision College we provide them with brand new gumboots, overalls, and wet weather gear along with farm skills so they can look the part and stay safe while they complete their training in our campus paddock and out on farms during their 3-week placement and farm visits. We have multiple practice farms based throughout the Waikato where they get to work hands on with cattle and be a part of the team helping the farmers with their day-to-day work!
We have successfully completed our first 12-week course where all the students have secured employment all over New Zealand in dairy farming positions, which is awesome! We are overjoyed to have our second class start this April so we can give them the skills and opportunities to succeed in dairy farming in New Zealand.
