Which Level?


Level 2: You have some knowledge and basic skills in the industry. You want to prove your competence in your role, likely in order to move from a junior position to a senior one. You may also be looking for a qualification to prepare you for further training.   Level 3: You’ve worked in agriculture for some time – you have plenty of experience. You want to show that you have the skills you need to do your job well, perhaps as part of your professional development or to prepare for higher-level training.


Course content

The Diploma in Work-based Agriculture (Poultry) level 2 is ideally suited for employees working at a technical level, such as stockman or hatchery worker. This qualification replaces the Level 2 NVQ in Livestock Production (Poultry) and is a QCF qualification.

To complete this qualification the learner selects units relevant to their workplace, each of which has a credit value. In total, units need to come up to the credit value of 37 credits. Poultec has developed a range of pathways to ensure all individuals complete units relevant to their area of work within the industry.

Poultec’s assessors deliver the training on the learner’s site in the form of direct assessment, and gather other evidence such as projects, questions and digital photographs. The learner builds an e-portfolio as they complete the qualification, which remains the learner’s property on completion.
