Agricultural On Farm Training

Whangarei A&P Society is seeking expressions of interest to be part of our brand-new on farm residential training initiative!

Training Farm Initiative

Are you struggling for staff at your place? Or looking for a new on-farm training opportunity?

Whangarei A&P Society has committed a seeding fund to the establishment of an on-farm internship programme, focussed on the outcome of providing job-ready Northland interns who have the right skills and attitudes, so they are employable in the industry while also being ‘good citizens’. 


Are you struggling for capable staff? Concerned for the future of the Primary Sector workforce? We're seeking expressions of interest to be part of our brand new residential training initiative.

  • Become a sponsoring farmer ‘employer’ for a live-in trainee intern (two-year minimum).
  • Farmers will provide accommodation, meals and practical on-the-job support.
  • Help a young person get their career start while sharing your skills, experience and mentoring plus getting an extra pair of hands on farm.


Do you want to live and work on a Northland farm, while earning your New Zealand Certificate in Agriculture?
