DIPLOMA IN ANIMAL HUSBANDRY COURSE
Become an Agriculture Industry Professional.
With the emergence of developing nations like China and India, world demand for agricultural produce is likely to continue growing at a rapid rate throughout the 21st century. With increasing demand, the likely need for skilled and knowledgeable farm industry professionals is looking bright for decades to come.
As long as people continue to need food; this is an industry that is likely to boom.
This course is in many respects a cutting edge study program, offering opportunities to study things that mainstream agriculture often does not offer. This school is continuing to watch the industry and develop new study options to build into this course, quickly, and in response to rapid changes which are a feature of today's world.

Developing a Career
The decisions you make today will affect the opportunities you create for yourself tomorrow.
There are an infinite number of choices which a person can make about their career path; and an infinite number of paths you can set yourself on.
- Some paths may take you to a desirable place; while others might not.
- Some paths are easier to get onto than others.
- The thing that many people do not appreciate is that most paths have many different entry points. It is often easier to jump from an undesirable path to a more desirable path than to get onto a desirable path when you are on no pathway at all.
The first and most important step in finding a satisfying career path is to get started in the workplace. Get a job, any job, as soon as you can. It doesn’t matter too much what your first job is. It might be delivering pizzas or newspapers, working in an animal shelter or mowing lawns. It doesn’t even need to be paid. It can be a volunteer job.
If you are studying at secondary school or university, still try to do some part time work at the same time. An education is always important, but the majority of people who study something will end up working in something different to what they studied. Even doing volunteer work or starting a small business while you are a student can have a major effect upon your prospects after you complete your studies.
Sometimes it is easier to get experience when you are young and not highly qualified, than when you are older and highly qualified. Experience and learning acquired through part time employment are often just as impressive to a future employer as the qualification you are studying. Either one without the other may put you in a less advantageous position in the future.
Once you have a job keep looking for opportunities to improve your situation, whether in the existing job, or by moving on to something different. You will learn skills in every job you do, even if they are not skills you recognise at the time. As you progress through your career you will build on your skill set and develop new skills. Even if you change career you will often still be able to draw on skills you have developed in a different career, just in a different context. For example, if you start working in farm management you may develop skills in dealing with people which may later be applied to a job in agricultural marketing. If you start working as a veterinary assistant you may develop knowledge and skills that could help with care of animals on a farm, later in your career.
