For anyone with an intention of entering the agriculture industry, a night course is a great way of getting an idea of what to expect and to prepare yourself. While practical experience and hands-on work are extremely valuable; as farms continue to grow in size and specialty the need for qualifications is becoming increasingly apparent. Now more than ever it s important for those working in the industry to have extensive and transferable skills so that you can be ready for anything

Why Train in Agricultural Studies?

Even for those already established within the farming sector, there is an ongoing need for education. As technology evolves at an alarming pace it is imperative that those working on farms are highly skilled and up to date with all the latest equipment. This will ensure that the work is done as efficiently as possible; saving time, money and face in front of your neighbour who seems to be a dictionary on all the latest jargon; a nightcourse will prepare you well for those stilted conversations over the fence.

The number of subjects your studies can focus on is copious and diverse. This is because the problems that are encountered on farms on a daily basis are equally as varied. Everything from lessons on modern technology to food safety advice will be provided, giving participants a general yet extensive insight into how the industry works and what is needed to maintain profitability.

A High-tech Sector

Those who still associate farming with the stereotypical images of Glenroe are more outdated than that block of cheese that lives in the top left side of your fridge. Although for some farming may be their primary employment, it is a growing trend that traditional farmers are also involved in other sectors such as manufacturing, food science, and agribusiness.

The options available are vast and exciting; ensuring that there will be no routine and drab desk life. The possibilities can run even further afield with increasing numbers entering related areas like tourism, education, and research; so if you’re employed in agriculture but feel like a change of pace why not consider taking a night course to take you into a related field (Get it? Field farming? We’ll get our coat.)
