Farmers learning from Farmers
Start date: Jun 1, 2015,
End date: May 31, 2017
Through the 'farmers learning from farmers'-project, students (agriculture and horticulture in technical and professional secondary education) will have the chance to immerse in practical life and work through internships in Estonia and England.
Agriculture and horticulture today is very dynamic. Apart from its role as a producer, it also takes up additional tasks in the protection of nature, recreation and tourism.
Teachers would like to experience in practice, together with their students, the new model and modern applications in Estonia and England. This will take place within the framework of competitive developmental learning. Apart from the individual internships, visits to centres of practice, surrounding companies and research centres with attention for sustainable agriculture and horticulture are aimed at broadening the practical understanding of the students.
Apart from practical competences and knowledge these visits will bring, the students will also benefit from this experience with a different culture and system of education. On top of that, the students will learn how to plan independently, how to adapt to new situations and how to take up more responsibility.
It will stimulate their empathic capabilities and increases engagement. These students will be better harnessed in life and will offer more experience to any interested employer.
