Why Agriculture?

We believe the agricultural industry is the place to be, why wouldn’t you want to be a part of this exciting, cutting edge sector?

Studying Dairy at Taratahi
  • The agricultural industry is facing a skills shortage.  New Zealand needs 1,100 new workers each year to meet the needs of the sector. 
  • Farmers need workers with attitude and aptitude.  We work hard to train well rounded and skilled workers – these people will go on to have long and rewarding jobs in the industry.

Why  Taratahi?

Taratahi is New Zealand’s largest Agricultural Training Provider.  We have been successfully preparing students for careers in agriculture since 1919.
