Our Schools Liaison team focuses on raising young people’s aspirations and awareness of the career opportunities that exist within the land based industries, utilising the FFIT centre to showcase the need for innovation in agriculture and food technology.
The team is available to attend school career events, assembly presentations and progression events across the North West - to meet and advise students on Further Education (school leaver) and Higher Education (university level) study.
In partnership with the College farm and Agriculture department here at Myerscough, we can offer a range of farm visit opportunities for secondary level pupils. These can be general farm visits or dovetailed to a specific part of the GCSE science or A Level curriculum. We work closely with the North West Regional Education Consultant for the FACE initiative (Farming and Countryside Education). Options exist to investigate genetics, selective breeding and genetic modification, ‘Health, disease and development of medicines’, Biodiversity, eco systems and land use.
