This 2 year Full Time programme aims to address an identified skills shortage within the agriculture sector at level 4. It aims to produce learners who have the management and vocational skills to operate at management/supervisory level within a rapidly re-structuring industry. The modules selected offer a balance of practical/vocationally weighted units and those aimed at developing cognitive skills which are transferable. Attendance at work placement will allow the students to apply principles and skills and will encourage investigation into the vocational area. The culture will be one of meeting challenges and being prepared to explore new concepts as the agricultural sector is in a state of rapid change in terms of the application of both technology and labour placing greater emphasis on higher level skills.
