If you are a student currently studying for a national diploma in a field of agriculture and you need to do your practical year, you are at the right place.
The first thing you will need to do is apply for workplace integrated learning - you can follow these instructions on our website, or you can contact our office during office hours.
When we receive your application, our team of Workplace Integrated Learning coordinators will review your application, so please make sure it is complete and that all the information required is supplied.
After reviewing your application, a decision will be made on whether you will be shortlisted or not. If you are shortlisted, we will contact you to arrange a face-to-face interview with you. This interview will ultimately determine whether or not you will be accepted into the program, so prepare well.
If you are selected, we will notify you and inform you about the procedure that follows. You will be provided with an induction date and venue. Your first week as an intern will be spent undergoing our induction program.
During induction you will receive all the information specific to your placement for instance, what farm you will be placed on, who will be your mentor, what code of conduct you will be subject to, etc. You will also go through a training program that consists of a number of short courses, such as Occupational Health and Safety and Leading a Team. The induction process has one purpose and that is to prepare you for the year ahead.
After you completed your induction program, you will be placed on your farm and be introduced to its staff - then you will officially be a working intern.
