Our two-year structured programme (46 weeks each year starting mid-January and ending mid-December) offers an array of specialised industry training and development and formal NZQA learning that includes classroom lectures, independent study and group sessions. This is combined with extensive practical work experience alongside experienced and motivated farmers who have signalled their intent by taking on students to grow the industry.
