Training of staff


Staff training is an organised program that helps employers and employees gain knowledge or learn skills which are specific to their job and which will improve their performance.

It is a learning plan that farm owners or managers can review and update as the business evolves and staff roles change. 

There are a wide range of learning options, such as webinars, conferences, online learning, workshops and industry tours, as well as opportunities for learning through farm improvement groups, such as Industry Groups, Catchment Groups, or Progression Groups.


Training helps farmers to incorporate the latest scientific advances and technology tools into their daily operations. The results of enhancing their operations with these tools increases efficiency and can also lead to less environmental harm.

Good training and development programmes also help farmers retain the right people on their staff and grow their farm profits.
