Agriculture

The Agriculture Academy enables students to gain practical experience and a theoretical understanding of agriculture and some horticulture with a view to following a career path in these areas.  Students are prepared for either entering the workforce directly or future study at university level.

The programme covers two or more years and is self-paced and in a multi-level class.  There is an interview process for students to be accepted into this programme and a code of conduct they must follow. Students need to have a keen interest in farming and preferably some practical experience.

Following completion of the compulsory part of the course, a programme can be built around an individual student’s interest and goals. The class also has practical activities such as fencing or stock work and industry trips during the year.
