New Zealand's economic success relies heavily on the productivity of the agricultural sector. Quality trained and motivated people are in high demand throughout Northland and New Zealand. There has never been a better time to get into this industry.
Whether you are new to the industry or want some very specific skill sets, there are programmes for you.
NorthTec, in partnership with Taratahi Agricultural Training Centre, is delivering a number of agricultural programmes on several farms and venues throughout Northland. There are programmes designed to meet a wide range of needs.
The learning environment is highly practical and is often delivered in a wool shed, workshop, at the yards, dairy shed or paddock.
Tutors have an extensive background in the agricultural sector and offer theory, technical and practical knowledge in a number of areas, including animal husbandry, soil and crop management, fencing, quad bikes, chainsaws and land management.
