What you'll learn on the course


Course programme

What Will I Learn

A range of topics will be covered during the course including how to monitor and mantain health, safety and security, develop an awareness of environmental good practice and agree how to manage and improve own performance in a business environment. The SVQ also includes optional units, for example how to provide feed and water to livestock, brood and grow young birds, and carry out maintenance and repair of equipment and machinery.

How Will I Learn

Most of your time is spent on a farm in a working environment with the assistance of an assessor. It lasts typically one year where the underpinning knowledge or theory behind the practices is taught.

Progression Opportunities

There are opportunities for those who successfully complete the course to remain in employment, to progress onto the SVQ3 Poultry Production or an equivalent qualification in an agriculture related subject.
