Technological advances in agriculture have increased in recent years, bringing with it a diverse range of careers you may not associate with driving tractors in a field. From drones and robots to genetic engineering and vertical cultivating, the industry needs skilled workers to meet the demands of this ever-changing sector.
An apprenticeship will allow you to earn money while you are studying. In order to start your apprenticeship in agriculture you will need to join the Level 2 course and on successful completion you can then progress on to Level 3 and beyond.
This Level 3 advanced apprenticeship, is an ideal progression from the initial Level 2 programme and will allow you to gain skills to work in a junior supervisory role within the sector. You must have relevant employment within the agriculture sector to complete this qualification. If you need help to find an employer, please get in touch.

Sarah Cann Dairy Farm Manager
It's made me able to take on more responsibility’s on the family farm at home and given more knowledge to look after and manage the cows its also given me more confidence in my ability’s and helped me with decision making. At the moment I work full time home on a 70 cow robotic dairy farm while my dad works away from home and I also I do relief milking on two other farms and do some herd health and help manage the cows on one of the farms I relief milk on. I love looking after the cows and the management side to that . I have a real passion for cows and the health and cow signals .
If you're thinking about this course I would say go for it , the lectures are brilliant and your meet some friends for life and you can take a lot away from the course.
