What we do

We install the skills, ethics, knowledge and disciplines that a young person needs in order to succeed in today's agriculture industry.

The Waipaoa training model culture is based around core values of self discipline, team work and friendship. Graduates from our programme have a reputation for being well rounded, confident and motivated to achieve at the highest level. "Work Ready" as we see it.

Because our lecture facility and trainee living quarters are based on the station we have the ability to integrate both practical and theoretical components. Our trainees study toward National Certificate qualifications while experiencing the annual farm cycle first hand. Feedback from employers, industry representatives and University lecturers indicate that our trainees display an in-depth knowledge of general farm practice for their age.

Our Nationally recognised training initiatives are leading the way in preparing future agricultural leaders.
