You don't have to be from a farm to study Agribusiness
Meet Maia Kelly, a top Agribusiness year 13 student at St Paul’s Collegiate School in Hamilton. Maia was first attracted to the course as an option through her interest in business, and didn't know anything about the Primary Industries.
Agribusiness in Schools in conjunction with the Ministry of Education, NZQA and the primary industries have collaborated to design an agribusiness programme that will prepare the best and brightest students for careers in the primary sector.
It is offered at NCEA Levels 2 and 3 and is designed for students who excel in science and commerce subjects. This academic course exposes students to the wide range of skills required and the opportunities available in the primary sector beyond the farm gate.
The agribusiness programme is now being offered at other schools around New Zealand.
If you are interested in teaching Agribusiness this year and you have not already let us know of your intentions, please can you do so. We will be endeavouring to help you implement Agribusiness into your schools, so we are wanting some information on how to best meet your needs. Please click on the link and fill out the form:
