Find out more about the TEF.

This course will provide you with the knowledge and skills needed to succeed in the contemporary agricultural and horticultural industries. The changing global agriculture sector is meeting the challenges of production by means of digital, mechanical, and biochemical technological innovations, allowing producers to make informed decisions using sensors, communications, and data analytics. As the industry evolves it is important that you have a knowledge of advanced machinery, monitoring technologies and genetics, to reflect the automation of tasks now taking place in the land based industries. The impact of these technologies also requires an understanding of the economic and business aspects enabling produce to get from farm to table.

You will study at newly built facilities set in extensive grounds at Pershore College, and with access to industry standard technologies, you will be able to enter a wide range of sectors forming part of the global food production and supply chain.

The course has strong links to the local agricultural and horticultural industries, and will be an opportunity to study in an environment that includes commercial production activities and ongoing cutting-edge applied horticultural research.
