Agriskills entry program

Developed by FGT and TasTAFE as the entry level training , the program offers skills training for new and existing employees, as well as a pathway into employment for Tasmanian residents seeking ongoing employment within the agriculture sector. 

After working cooperatively with TasTAFE for a number of months, TasTAFE have agreed to bring 10 units together in a single discounted Agriskills Entry Program.  This program will provide the entry level skills growers have called for over a number of years and enable their current and prospective employees to be ‘job ready’!

The Agriskills Entry Program is designed as the entry level training for the agriculture sector as part of COVID-19 recovery plan. It is aimed at a pathway into employment and potential transition into either a Certificate II traineeship or Certificate III apprenticeship.  Entry into each of the Skills Sets will be for Tasmanian residents only (those with a minimum residential address of the last 12 months) aiming for ongoing employment within the industry sector. Delivery of the Program will be State-wide and available to all agricultural sectors.

With the imminent availability of this program, FGT is looking for early feedback from growers about the number of people they wish to attend the program/individual skills sets, as well as preferred location and month.
