Dairy Farming

The industry wants shorter, targeted, and flexible training. Ahead of a major review of the agriculture qualification suite next year, Muka Tangata will explore the role of micro-credentials in reshaping training for the dairy industry.  

For example, we will explore splitting the Level 5 Agribusiness Diploma into micro-credentials, to appeal to a wider audience. We will also develop shorter, targeted training, in the form of micro-credentials, to address targeted skills needed. We are engaging with industry to identify priority areas which could include dairy grazing, calf rearing, agri-tech, irrigation operation and troubleshooting, critical decision making and on-farm biosecurity.
