Agriculture Crops & Livestock
Agriculture Level 2
The programme includes a balance between the “hands-on” practical sessions and theory and will give you a real insight into the agriculture industry. Our working commercial farm will provide you with the opportunity to develop your skills and undertake a range of farm duties with the team. Our farm includes a grass-based dairy system, 126 acres of arable land and a sheep flock. We run an extensive programme of trips and visits as well as running masterclasses with a wide range of industry specialists and guest speakers. In the spring term, you are required to complete an industry placement as part of your course to further enhance your employability skills and develop industry contacts.
This exciting and ever-changing industry needs talented, flexible people who are ready to take on a challenge. Over 70% of the jobs in the agricultural industry involve knowledge of animal or plant science and physiology, data management, engineering, technology, genetics and includes everything from running organic production systems to co-ordinating satellite GPS mapping with drones and robots. If you’re ambitious, there are National and International opportunities to progress in this industry.
