Federated farmers apprenticeship dairy

recruiting bright and motivated new zealanders into the dairy industry

 

We’re recruiting now for new apprentices and employers to join us. 

 

Federated Farmers and Primary ITO have teamed up on the Federated Farmers Apprenticeship Dairy - a new apprenticeship to rapidly grow people capability in the industry.

Apprentices will ‘earn while they learn’, develop their skills on-job and grow their careers. Employers will enjoy motivated staff, and learn and grow throughout the apprenticeship too.

How it works

Step 1

REGISTER YOUR INTEREST

Registrations of interest are open from people looking to become an apprentice, and from employers who either want to recruit new apprentices, or who have current staff keen to become an apprentice. Once your registration has been received, we’ll be in touch to discuss if being an apprentice or an employer could work for you. 

Step 2

Start training

If you're an apprentice, you’ll be trained by a Federated Farmers member and employer who is invested in helping you to succeed. 

If you're an employer, you'll be supported by the development of a Farm Charter. This ensures you can provide the best work environment, on-job training and career development for your apprentice.

Step 3

Get qualified

If you're an apprentice you’ll work alongside your employer to grow your skills on-job, attend local learning events and gain NZQA-recognised qualifications. Employers will be supported to grow their own management, HR and business skills. You'll be supported by your local Federated Farmers and Primary ITO team throughout your journey.
