Connection with Vocational Training
Agracademy sought to explore the connection between the exhibitors, innovators and business, on the one hand, and the new kind of work that the industry demands.
The changing nature of work demands that learning organizations align themselves closer with a wide range of industries in order to truly prepare young people for the shape of an uncertain future.
Specific emphasis was placed on exploring the elements and characteristics of successful Startups that provide clues to what the new workforce in Agriculture will look like. Consequently, the nature of curriculum, the structure of learning and the nature of outcomes in education, to name a few, are now crucial to explore if there is to be a shift in vocational training in agriculture that can truly prepare a citizenry with adequate knowledge and skills.
