THE CADETSHIP PROGRAMME
The Pukemiro Station Cadetship is a 2 year programme.
It's hands-on, focused both on the farm and in the classroom, with cadets living on site in their own cottage throughout the duration of the programme.
Cadets will receive the following:
Practical on-farm training in all day to day operations of Pukemiro Station including stockmanship, fencing, animal husbandry, feed management and farm technology to name a few.
Personal training and growth such as cooking, leadership, goal setting, time management and up keeping their living quarters.
Cadets will be working towards the following Qualifications, facilitated by EIT:
New Zealand Certificate in Agriculture (Vehicles, Machinery and Infrastructure) Level 3
New Zealand Certificate in Agriculture (Farming Systems) Level 3
New Zealand Certificate in Agriculture (Breeding Livestock Farming) Level 4
We only take on three students a year so we look for driven, hard working students that want to develop their skills and gain the qualifications they need to have a successful career in the agriculture industry.
