Longerenong College has partnered with Bendigo TAFE to offer new pathways for agriculture students to attend Longerenong College to further their qualifications.
The partnership agreement enables students studying eligible agriculture courses at Bendigo TAFE to transition to an Advanced Diploma of Agribusiness Management and/or Applied Diploma of Agronomy at Longerenong College.
For students who may not be ready to move away from home, this means they can complete their first year closer to home and move to Longerenong College to experience #lifeatlongy.

“This agreement between the two educational institutions will provide a long-term benefit to students who would like to further their studies in Agriculture/Agribusiness/Agronomy.
“A qualification from Longerenong College allows grads to step into roles with responsibility and seniority and in many cases significant autonomy.
“With the 1100+ Ha broadacre farm, 1000+ sheep and 40+ cattle herd, the study experience moves fluidly between the lecture theatre and the paddocks. This is the experience that Longerenong College has been providing to students and industry for 135 years.”

The partnership will also see Longerenong College and Bendigo TAFE work together on future opportunities to advance agriculture training.

Acting CEO Bendigo TAFE Graham Fryer said that partnerships like these are critical to improving opportunities for students to continue their studies while gaining valuable real-life and on-the-job experiences.

“By partnering with Longerenong College our students will be able to stay closer to home and work for longer while still pursuing further qualifications and the highest standard of practical training.”

“We look forward to seeing the skills and knowledge they gain come back to the region to help boost our local agricultural industry,” said Mr Fryer.

Longerenong College is working to develop further relationships with Institutions like Bendigo TAFE.

“We are committed to providing quality education across a broad geographic area, and a wide range of programs, to support students, and the industries who require the graduates,” said Ms Hogan.

“We want to maximise access to the facility at Longerenong College with its commercially operating farm, accommodation facility that can house more than 150 students between dorms and newly built shared houses, and campus social life.
