Enrolment boost – The most students in a decade!
Full-time students have again flocked to Longerenong College to study agriculture at the iconic agricultural college. Although each year we have seen an increase in students studying agriclture, the students enrolled this year are the largest number of agricultural students seen in a decade.
The College is one of only a handful of agricultural College’s in Australia which offers practical training in agriculture with the added bonus of the 1070 hectare property available for training. This is a major drawcard for students wanting to get their hands dirty whilst gaining their agricultural qualification. So for students who are interested in agronomy, livestock, wool-classing and agribusiness, Longerenong College is the place to learn.
Another major attraction for agricultural focussed students is the Bayer CropScience’ new wheat and oilseed centre due to open later this year. Bayer CropScience have invested $14 million into the centre, which has the potential to employ up to 20 full-time staff and many casual positions. The centre is one of seven being built around the world.
