A new Tasmanian Agricultural Education Framework will bring together school-based agriculture programs to help students make decisions about their future.
The Grow, Make, Protect program will help students from kindergarten to year 12 learn more about the agriculture sector, primary industries, and regional jobs.
Many schools have already shown interest in piloting the courses, including St Marys and Campbell Town district high schools.
Processes are already underway for two new courses – Agricultural Enterprise Level 2 and Agricultural Systems level 3.
Education Minister Jeremy Rockliff said the program was about supporting curriculum, higher education and program delivery to promote careers in primary industries.
