“Sparsholt has given me a strong understanding of the fundamental areas of the industry so I can move on to higher education with confidence in my current knowledge.”Jack, Agriculture
Reflecting the latest developments in farm machinery and practices, Agriculture at Sparsholt continues to be a growing choice for many who are eager to become the next generation of skilled technical staff and managers.
Our students learn all about modern farming techniques and the technology shaping work on the land, alongside hands-on experience on our working commercial farm and in our workshops making repairs to machinery and tractors. Getting involved in events from a charity ploughathon to visits to shows, industry events and machinery dealers, our students gain high levels of knowledge and practical skills in all aspects of the industry.
Some of our students’ university destinations include:
“I have worked extensively in agriculture, predominantly within the dairy sector. As an agricultural lecturer at Sparsholt College, I enjoy the opportunity to use my knowledge and experience to educate and encourage new entrants into the industry.”
