Careers in Agriculture and Horticulture

Hoof Count (an international industry specialist) came to visit our farm and talked to a number of our KS4 & 5 BTEC pupils to help them understand how the subject content in Agriculture and Horticulture relates to life beyond school and life in our local community.

Pupils were given information about the common issues involved in dairy farming, shown potential career paths, and given some introductory training in cattle mobility scoring.  The session was greatly enjoyed;  many of our pupils do continue their studies in Agriculture and Horticulture when they leave us and many take up employment in related industries.
