The Primary Industries are the backbone of New Zealand’s economy – and they’re always looking for aspirants with the right skills.
UCOL’s Primary Industries programmes includes agriculture, beekeeping, dairy, fencing, shearing and ag contracting. These programmes are taught by industry professionals and delivered through hands-on learning in real environments and we are expanding our delivery across all of our rohe (Wanganui, the Manawatu, Horowhenua, and the Wairarapa).
The future of our primary industries won’t look the same, and our Government has pointed out the need for diverse, innovative new people and skills. The demand for qualified employees is growing rapidly, so be ready to help shape our country’s future success.
