A Proposal for the Development of Agricultural Education for Fraser Valley College.
Bate, Dick; And Others
A program designed to meet the training needs of the agricultural community served by Fraser Valley College is outlined. Proposed as a two-year diploma program, it is designed for both full- and part-time enrollment and includes three major programs: livestock production, plant production, and poultry production. Each program contains several options to cover the various sectors of the agricultural industry. Courses are structured around 30-hour modules which can be taken separately or as packages to meet the needs of pre-service or in-service user groups. The program is production-oriented and includes a high proportion of practical experience on host farms; this has the advantage of not only providing realistic practical experience for the student, but also places the student in direct contact with future employers. Curriculum outlines and budget projections are included in the document. Appendices contain recommendations of consultants on agricultural training needs in the college service area and other supporting documentation. (Author/MB)
