Riseholme College launches Agricultural mentoring programme
7 Mar 2023 | Degree Level
The mentoring scheme is just the latest addition to the land-based provision at the college, working with local farmers to develop the skills of the current agricultural workforce and invest in the next generation. Investment of £1.2m in the Institute of Technology, Centre for Agri-Food Technology at the college’s Showground campus is already delivering higher-level skills and training through the very latest technologies designed to transform food production by improving productivity and reducing environmental impact.
Assistant Principal Higher Education Rachael Fell-Chambers said “At Riseholme College we are committed to preparing our students for the world of work beyond our walls. The introduction of this fantastic programme will add an additional layer of experience for our students; working hand in glove with our hands-on higher-level specialist education, delivered by our expert team, many of whom have worked extensively within industry themselves. I am excited to see the benefits students and employers alike will undoubtedly derive from this opportunity.”
