Across New Zealand, there are a range of flexible study options to develop your career or upskill your employees in the horticulture field. Programmes are available part-time or full-time.
For those living in the Bay of Plenty who are looking to upskill themselves or their workers, NZKGI have created a resource to make the qualification selection process easier. The resource is a horticulture qualification table that encompasses all course options available in the Bay of Plenty region.
The table provides information around full-time courses, part-time courses or apprenticeships and includes entry-level options through to Level 5 Diplomas. Under the Targeted Training and Apprenticeship Fund (TTAF or free trades training)) all Primary Industry training, including Horticulture, is fees free until Dec 31, 2022. This includes all apprenticeships, Level 3-7 sub-degree programmes, and industry training outside of apprenticeships.
The Horticulture Qualification resource is available here.
