Agriculture (Level 2)
You will learn the basic aspects of Agriculture on a principally livestock-based farm. You will learn how to provide estate maintenance and the principles of livestock husbandry across the range of animals we have on our farm.
How is the course structured and graded?
The units are graded Pass, Merit or Distinction.
This is based on meeting certain criteria throughout the coursework. A degree of written and independent learning is required, reinforced by many practical sessions on the school farm.
Will this course be suitable for me?
The course involves practical work, followed up with evidenced based reports and assignments. You should enjoy working with animals and being outdoors but also be prepared to complete multiple assignments.
“I found the course varied and interesting. I enjoy working and learning outside of the
classroom so this subject is ideal for me. Being with the animals is the best bit and
the written work is OK and not too difficult.” Student
What could this course lead to?
