Why Agriculture?

We believe the agricultural industry is the place to be, why wouldn’t you want to be a part of this exciting, cutting edge sector?

Studying at Telford
  • The agricultural industry is facing a skills shortage.  New Zealand needs 1,100 new workers each year to meet the needs of the sector. 
  • Farmers need workers with attitude and aptitude.  We work hard to train well rounded and skilled workers – these people will go on to have long and rewarding jobs in the industry.

Why Telford?

Telford has been successfully preparing students for futures in agriculture since 1964.
