Get Ahead is a one stop career programme aimed at secondary school students who are checking out a career in agriculture – for those who aren’t aware of the opportunities available just yet; because the beauty of the modern day agriculture industry is its diversity.
Agriculture is not just about traditional on-farm roles; there are many opportunities in Agri-business and Agri-science sectors too. Everything from marketing to research science, dairy farming to rural banking – there really is something for everyone.
The Get Ahead career programme aims to demonstrate to students about these options through Experience Days that are held around the country followed up by the In2 the Field Mentor Programme where keen students get to learn from those in the know. The practical aspects of the programme are backed up through in-depth resources found on the Get Ahead website.
