Kaea Taitoko - Agriculture

“I left school and was looking online for agriculture training because it was one of my interests. When I saw this course I wanted to give it a go so I came to the interview and started the next week. I commute from Kerikeri to Kaikohe four days a week and I love it.”

“Being outdoors with the animals and learning new things are the best parts of the course for me. The study needs some self-discipline but I’ve made it a priority. The tutors make sure we get our work done and are with us 100 per cent of the way.”

“It’s good for me to get new experiences. I’ve met new people, I’ve milked cows for the first time and I’ve even conquered my fear of bulls. I’m a hands-on person and being outside gives me a feeling of being free.”

“Completing this course will help me achieve bigger things. It’s a really good knowledge foundation and from here I hope to move on to Telford for full-time study in sheep and beef farming. I’d like to run my own farm, make money and do things for people.”
