This programme is designed to give students the knowledge and experience needed to begin their farming career journey. Throughout this programme, they will learn practical skills such as tractor driving, safe use of quad bikes, fencing, and health and safety practices.
Alongside classroom-based work, this programme includes practical experience on a farm, therefore graduates are equipped with essential knowledge and skills for work in an entry-level role on a farm or further training.
On successful completion, students will be able to find employment in a range of agricultural roles such as a dairy farmer or farmworker.
