Owned by PGG Wrightson and accredited with the New Zealand Qualifications Authority to deliver approved training courses at levels 1−6 on the National Qualifications Framework, Agriculture New Zealand is one of the largest providers of agriculture and horticulture training throughout New Zealand.
Agriculture New Zealand has been a specialist provider of quality agricultural and horticultural training since 1993. All of our agriculture programmes have been awarded the AgExcel Quality Mark which is endorsed by DairyNZ and Beef + Lamb New Zealand and recognises industry relevant, superior agricultural training.
Each year our skilled and qualified staff provide training to over 3000 learners throughout New Zealand. Much of the training is delivered in partnership with Telford (a division of Lincoln University), Aoraki Polytechnic and the Western Institute of Technology Taranaki (WITT). We provide training to Landcorp staff throughout New Zealand and deliver the formal training programme on Smedley Station – a long established training farm in the Hawkes Bay.
Our full-time courses are ideal for people starting out or wanting to fast track their agriculture or horticulture careers.
Our part-time courses provide flexible learning options for a wide range of people.
