I have recently joined Oaklands College, however, I have managed a variety of curriculum areas and been in education for 20 years. I am committed and passionate about education and believe it is essential to place the learner at the heart of everything we do, and provide the optimum learning experience, ensuring our learners have the best possible education to equip them with the skills they need to go on to achieve their full potential. Sharing this ethos and supporting me I have an excellent team of highly skilled and dedicated staff.

Our agriculture students benefit from:

  • Working alongside staff who specialise in working with animals
  • First-hand experience of looking after a variety of animals based on our site
  • Curriculum designed to give students a great starting point for when they enter into the industry.

Students  have the chance to learn how to prepare and show livestock at county shows around the country, including the Hertfordshire, Suffolk and Berkshire shows, where past students have picked up an impressive collection of prizes.

Every spring during peak lambing time our students take part in a rota system and stay at the College around the clock to make sure ewes who are giving birth get the assistance and care they need.

All of our full time programmes include opportunities to support and enhance your learning so that you can achieve your goals and ambitions. Students enrol on a Study Programme which individualises their education whilst enhancing their employability skills. A Study programme is made up of four key elements which includes a main vocational qualification, the development of English and maths through the study of GCSE’s or Functional Skills, Work-related learning through work experience and Personal Development Reviews.
