Taratahi's education portfolio for schools has evolved in recent years to meet the agricultural industry's need for a skilled workforce. Taratahi's Telford Campus now offers an enhanced, modern approach to learning, aligned to regional opportunities. 

Year 11 and 12 - NCEA Level 2

Schools work with our Regional Managers to choose three modules per year (one per term), delivered one day per week at our Telford Campus. In some cases, Year 12 students attend 2 days per week. Each module offers approximately seven level 2 Unit Standard credits. Year 11 and 12 modules include traditional farming topics such as Fencing and Livestock, plus other primary industry topics such as Beekeeping, Sustainability, Equine and Wool Handling. 

All modules are supported with industry guest speakers and field trips. A broad spectrum of external engagement is sought so students can learn first-hand about the career opportunities available to them. 

Year 13 - NCEA Level 3  

Telford offers numerous NCEA Level 3 options – all which pathway into multiple opportunities, such as entry level employment or an apprenticeship. These options include one, two or three days delivery per week (students select a second or third programme if a second day is required).

One day per week option (no pre-requisites)

Preparation for Farming – Suited to those students who are thinking of a career in traditional farming.

Preparation for Apiculture - Suited to those students interested in bees and bee keeping. 

Preparation for Equine – Suited to those students thinking of a career in Equine.

All options above pathway to full-time Level 3 qualifications (and onto level 4 and 5 if desired).
