New Horticulture course options for 2019

Hilary Johnson —

Horticulture at Katikati College has changed to offer a modular, flexible and future-focused programme of learning that can really take students places in the many career paths available in this amazingly diverse, growing industry, or in other industries where innovation is key.

The programme has three main strands: Innovation and Creativity, Business Management and Plant Science and Technology.

Students choose from topics in Marketing, Digital Technology, Science, Agribusiness and Environmental Sustainability as well as Plant Management, selecting those most relevant to them and their plans.

Students will be taught by multiple specialist teachers in the same time slot to allow you to move between areas of learning in your portfolio. Significant real-life learning will take place in orchards, nurseries and other local businesses, thanks to the enthusiastic response from the local horticulture industry.
