Agribusiness Training Ltd

Private Training Establishment

Agribusiness Training has been providing training to land based industries for 14 years, through its branches across the country.  All training leads to qualifications recognised by NZQA, and is often modular so the most suitable mixture of study can be selected to suit students and the industry they are focussing on.

Training is part-time so it easier for those in rural locations, employment or business to participate.  It covers the range of: health and safety; safely using vehicles, chainsaws and sprays; fencing; dairy, sheep, deer and arable farming; horticulture; equine care; and the major provider of apiculture training in New Zealand. 

Groups of international students would have a training package that included part time study and work experience.

Agribusiness Training has courses all over New Zealand. It uses part time venues in the rural countryside so students learn theory at the same time as practical for the industry they are interested in. There is 1 tutor to 6 students during practical work,and 1 to 12 students during theory work. Training gives students the practical skills they need for work, and the knowledge to understand what they are doing and make decisions when they need to. International students would be helped to find accommodation in the community where they are studying, where they would look after themselves.
Southland is a land of rugged coast and rolling plains, world-renowned Bluff oysters and the launching place for a visit to Stewart Island.

Southland’s largest centre is Invercargill. If you’re a garden lover you must see Queens Park and its 80 hectares of tree-lined walkways and diverse gardens. The city turns on the hospitality so, if you’re looking for somewhere to stay, you’ll find plenty of friendly and high standard accommodation.

Half an hour from Invercargill is the fishing port of Bluff. Known for its fabulous seafood, this is the place to taste the famous Bluff oysters. If you like bird watching, catch a ferry to Stewart Island where you’ll find a haven for native bird life and the only place in New Zealand where you have a fair chance of seeing kiwi in their native habitat.

And speaking of wildlife, head along the coast to the Catlins. The Catlins River Walk leads you through beech forest and is known for its hidden waterfalls and rare native birds. At Curio Bay you’ll find fossilized trees, over 180 million years old, embedded in coastal bedrock. And at Nugget Point you’ll find fur seals, sea lions, sooty shearwaters, shags, yellow-eyed penguins, spoonbills and a breeding colony of gannets. And if you look closely, you may see Hector's dolphins frolicking out in the waves.
