Description

This course presents many different techniques and general measures, which may be adopted in order to move a farm toward greater sustainability whether the concerns are commercial, environmental or something else. Improving sustainability is sometimes as simple as changing what is being farmed or how it is being marketed, but it may also be a multi faceted problem that requires changes in a whole range of farm management practices.

There commitment and innovative apporaoch has enabled them to achieve execptionaly high achievement rates for there students which exceeds the national average.

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

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!
