Content

If you’re looking for a hands-on job and have a passion for working outdoors with crops and livestock, a career in agriculture could be for you.

We will provide you with a good all round learning experience of up-to-date farming methods. You will learn about on-farm quality Scottish food production, both in the classroom and on a working farm.

The course includes practical work (either in blocks or weekly, depending on your location) and you will get involved with Spring crop work, gain experience operating machinery, and provide care for the animals all year round, especially during lambing season.

Entry Requirements
