Cumbria has a diverse land-based sector and our programmes will teach you modern techniques for productivity and business methods that will allow you to embrace the opportunities that will arise in the years to come. With our Cumbrian based offer and staff expertise, we will tailor our programmes to suit the needs of the local employers whilst ensuring that you have the knowledge and skills to succeed anywhere. With Cumbrian agriculture alone accounting for nearly 5% of all English farms over 508,000 hectares and full time 12,000 jobs there is plenty of work to do.

We will use our network of local employers to give you a diverse, relevant set of experiences. This won’t be tied to one place or type of location or our facilities, so we can ensure you receive the training you need to be ready for what faces you after you leave college. This will include both taught practical sessions and work placements. You will undertake a work experience package that will allow you to put into practice and develop the skills you learn at college. This will be tailored to develop the skills and knowledge you need for your future in agriculture.
