Careers advice events at CAFRE

Date published: 10 August 2018

Getting exam results can be a very stressful time - perhaps you did better than you thought or perhaps it didn’t just go to plan.

Horticulture graduate Cameron Beggs (Belfast) highly recommends the CAFRE careers advice events to learn about the wide range of opportunities available in the agri-food sector.

Whatever happens the College of Agriculture Food and Rural Enterprise (CAFRE) is here to help if you are interested in a career in the agri-food and land-based sector. CAFRE offers a range of courses in horticulture, equine, food and agriculture as well as floristry, land-based engineering and veterinary nursing. You can study either full time, part-time or through work based programmes and apprenticeships.
