Riseholme College is nationally acclaimed as one of the leading establishments in the country for agricultural education and training.

We are an Association of College's (AoC) Beacon Award Winner in this area.

Students at all levels benefit from practical duties and work experience placements, meaning they develop essential skills to go straight into work.



Agriculture students at Riseholme College benefit from practical work on farms as part of their courses, as well as work experience placements at relevant companies to help build up their experience and knowledge of the industry. 

Students work at the College's Home Farm. In addition, Riseholme has partnerships with sereval local farms and related businesses across Lincolnshire, including Roy Ward Farms Ltd and Lockwood Estates, which allows students to gain valuable experience.

Students also benefit from working on the 360-hectare Bishop Burton College farm, and are required to provide overalls – available from the online College shop – wellington boots and steel toe-capped boots.
