Agriculture - BTEC Level 3 Extended Diploma Full-time (FE)

Lou Tring
1.0 01/05/2015
What I would highlight: The course was very disappointing. There are not many things I could say I like. Two of the lecturers Rachel and Sian doing the visits made the effort. Got lesson plans together and online material. The library is good, with knowledgeable staff.
What could be improved: I am used to doing degree level, and hound a lot of this was taught at less than GCSE grade. The course is overpriced with having hardly any visits out to the workplace, and most lecturers not being able to teach or control the class. The facilities are run down, and not many of them. They should help arrange a range of work experiences. I think I would have done better at teaching the classes myself!

Very few non-rural businesses are presented with the continuing changes and variations that confront a rural business.

The impact of climate and the environment requires the rural manager has to continually consider, evaluate, and reassess (often on a daily or even hourly basis,) the numerous changes and types of information that affect his or her business. The successful rural manager understands his or her unique markets, and how to capitalise on market forces to maximise business profit.

This course develops your ability to analyse and manage marketing problems in an agricultural enterprise. Topics covered include: market research, management of your marketing, promotions, handling produce, packaging, distribution, customer relations and more.
