“Covering both arable and livestock enterprises, with a view to progressing within the agriculture sector”
The agriculture intermediate and advanced apprenticeships are designed to provide you with the skills and knowledge required to carry out your role and support your future progression within the sector. The sheer range of jobs within agriculture are reflected in the apprenticeships, covering both arable and livestock enterprises. They provide an entry route into the sector as a general farm worker, but provide progression through to an assistant herdsperson/assistant arable manager. You’ll be able to take units in crop production, livestock production, mixed farming or poultry production, depending on the type of farm you’re working on. The intermediate apprenticeship will prepare you to become a general farm worker (livestock, crop or mixed farm), tractor driver, stockperson, pig technician or hatchery staff, while the advanced apprenticeship focuses on livestock technician, shepherd or hatchery supervisor/charge-hand.
