Agriculture Programme, Level 2 at Abingdon and Witney College

Course description

This course has a good balance of both theory and practical elements to help you learn and practice the skills you will need to work in the Agricultural Industry. You will be based at Common Leys Farm where we have a range of livestock and agricultural machinery, and you will also visit, and have access to, local farms where you will see a range of different animal and crop husbandry methods. Modules may include work related experience, as well as, environmental and land based business, farm animal production, land based machinery operations, estate maintenance and animal and plant husbandry. Functional skills or GCSEs in English and Maths are an integral part of the programme. Students will also complete work experience, which is one day per week at Common Leys Farm plus additional days out in an industry placement. Additional enrichment activities including trips and visits will allow you to develop further employability skills.
