Farm Trainers

All our farm trainers show a desire to educate and train their students. They are patient, empathetic, friendly with an encouraging disposition and willingness to upskill their own attributes.

What's involved in being a Farm Trainer?

Farm trainers take a student on the two-year programme to give them practical skills, training and experience in agriculture.


Students live and train on farm as part of your farm team for the duration of the course. Regional Liaison Managers work with Farm Trainers and Students to support the training.


Typically students are on courses one day per week and will be on farm training and building experience four days per week.


Farm trainers host some training of the regional group and attend Quarterly Progress Meetings with Student and Liaison Manager.

I got involved with GFF because I saw a need to provide more young people the opportunity to enter the sheep, beef and deer industry. It is immensely rewarding having these young people start with little to no farming skills and then see them progress, develop and grow as people to become valuable contributors to the team and the business. It is a real win-win that delivers meaningful outcomes to the student and the farm business."
