Did you know - as part of entering the Share Farmer of the Year category you could fast-track your way to a New Zealand Diploma in Agribusiness Management?
Share Farmer of the Year entrants have the opportunity to have the body of work they prepare for the awards also count towards modules in the New Zealand Diploma in Agribusiness Management.
This process is called Recognition of Prior Learning (RPL). RPL is the formal recognition of learning that has been undertaken in a non-formal setting (e.g. outside of a tertiary organisation) which could count towards a formal qualification. This includes the knowledge and skills you have learnt through your experience working in the dairy industry.
