Our videos are perfect to encourage school students to consider weekend, holiday and (perhaps one day!) full-time work in agriculture. So we’ve curated a suite of online training including 50+ videos to give students a head start.
*Valid until 30 November 2024.
Agricademy doesn’t offer qualifications. Our content proudly sits in what’s known as the ‘non-formal learning’ space. We offer quality online training in the practical skills and tasks required for today’s farm roles. All the online training and on-farm follow-up sessions have been created by farmers, trainers and teachers. While not officially accredited by NZQA, we have made sure our content aligns to unit standards – we know it’s very suitable to NCEA level 2.
Each student will have access to online learning with over 50 videos, pdfs and quizzes introducing them to roles on-farm and in-shed. Click on the topics below to see the list of learning.
Each student can watch the videos at any time and from any where, or a school may decide to make the content part of inquiry learning or in a classroom learning.
Quiz questions at the end of each lesson (except there’s no quiz for listening and communication) are self-assessed. A student can attempt the questions again if any are incorrect. All the answers are in the video.
To sign up for this offer, email the school name, full address and the name of the contact person for the school to
Agricademy will then forward an invoice for $1000+ GST to the school.
On payment in full, a school administrator will be given access to the Agricademy site, along with a how-to video showing how to register each student onto the courses.
Once registered, a student will receive an automated email inviting them to sign into the training videos.
A school administrator or designated contact person can also monitor a student’s progress at any time.
(We appreciate that funding for each school is different. Talk to us about payment options!)
If you’re keen for holiday or weekend work and can get yourself to and from a local dairy farm or shearing shed, farmers and contractors are always looking for reliable workers, where you can work part-time and earn good money.
Did you know that as a relief milker on a dairy farm you can earn at least $25+ per hour – even more on some farms?
People who work as a relief milker say no two days are the same. They love getting up early, working, and then having the rest of the day to do other things between milkings. Seeing the sun rise is a bonus too.
Shed hands, shearers and wool handlers who are good at their jobs have the opportunity to earn good money and to travel the world to work; Australia, or further afield to the States, UK and Europe. Work is seasonal. You need to eat well and move well and look after yourself as the work is physically demanding. There’s also the opportunity to be competitive – there are world records to be attempted!
Let your parent, caregiver, teacher or department head know if you’re keen to be enrolled in Agricademy’s online training.
If you’re a parent or caregiver of a high school child/teenager, Agricademy online videos provide the perfect platform for students to get a sense of what life is like on a dairy farm and in a shearing shed.
If you are keen for your child to sign up for online training independently from the offer to schools, please get in touch via email@example.com
