BTEC Level 3 in Agriculture
“Bishop Burton is a really good college. Everyone is there to help you and having the farm to work on helps you understand it more, rather than just sitting in a classroom. I would recommend it to anyone wanting to study agriculture.”
Chantelle has benefitted greatly from the opportunity to work on the College farm as part of her course.
She and her fellow Agriculture students have developed a wide range of practical skills across many different areas of farming, which has helped prepare them for careers in the industry.
Chantelle is planning to further enhance these skills by progressing to study a degree in Agriculture at the College.
“We have done a mixture of arable and livestock farming, so everything to do with crops and all different farm animals,” she said.
“We have done a lot of practical work on the farm. It involves shearing sheep, for example, checking on the crops – all aspects of farming really.
“I’m now looking at staying at the College to do a degree and would like to follow in my dad’s footsteps as an agronomist.
