Anne-Marie Butler Head of Education at Teagasc joins Catherine Egan on this week’s Beef Edge podcast to discuss the wide variety of courses Teagasc has to offer, Kildalton Agricultural College celebrating 50 years in education and the upcoming Beef2022 Open Day.
Having been appointed as Head of Education as at the end of last year, Anne-Marie discusses how is it going so far. She gives an overview of the Education programme in Teagasc across the agricultural colleges and advisory centres.
The practical learning period with a host farmer is a real highlight for students she says, describing the students’ experiences.
There are great options to progress through the different levels with a number of educational institutions and Anne-Marie discusses the part time and the distance education green cert.
Many listeners would have a strong connection and memories of their time in Kildalton Agricultural College which is celebrating 50 years of education on June 25th from 11am-4pm.
