Inspiring the next generation of innovators and entrepreneurs
This pioneering and innovative personal development programme is now approaching its eighth year with over 250 alumni.
The Agri Academy, which provides an action packed programme of training, mentoring, support and guidance over 3 intense residential sessions and virtual supplementary sessions, has 2 distinct elements:
- Business and Innovation Programme - aimed at supporting and inspiring the next generation of farming and forestry innovators and entrepreneurs in Wales.
- Junior Programme – aimed at supporting young people aged between 16 and 19 years who hope to follow a career in the food, farming and forestry industries. The programme will offer participants a unique opportunity to network with high profile individuals within the industry. (The Junior Programme is a joint collaboration with Wales YFC).
The application window for Agri Academy 2021 is now closed.
