Agriculture and Science
No matter where you are in life, or what study or career goals you may have for your future, TasTAFE has a qualification or training program that is right for you!
A career in the agriculture and science sector can offer employment opportunities in areas as diverse as dairy farming, agriculture, aquaculture, laboratory operations, animal studies or horticulture, conservation and land management and forestry, or wine and viticulture.
If you enjoy coming up with solutions to real problems, planning and organising practical projects of varying sizes and like working outdoors, then this could be the industry for you!
The agriculture and science industries are hands-on, practical, and just calling out for enthusiastic, hardworking individuals who want to work in a range of diverse and rapidly changing environments.
Technology and innovation are driving these industries into adopting new practices, sustainability and workplace cultures from the office and the workshop to the field.
So, if you are interested in rolling up your sleeves and discovering how you can make a difference in managing our vast natural resources, a qualification in one of these areas could set you on the way to a very rewarding career!
