Ag Challenge is a registered New Zealand Qualification Authority (NZQA) accredited training provider, offering real world experience with practical hands-on training in the fields of Agriculture, Animal Care and Technology, and Building and Construction.
The practical experience is gained on two dairy farms milking 1200 cows, a building site where students build a complete relocatable classroom and the opportunity to learn in an operating Veterinary Clinic.
Ag Challenge was born over 30 years ago out of a relationship between Stephen Gudsell, property owner, with the then Department of Social Welfare to take small groups of clients and teach them basic dairying skills on his farm in Okoia, Wanganui East. Many of the clients were later able to find jobs in the dairy industry.
This led to the formation of Ag Challenge Limited and accreditation with NZQA in 1996. This allowed the formalisation of the education and training programmes and coincided with a strong demand from industry sectors for employees with formal qualifications in their field.
Ag Challenge currently offers training from Level 1 to Level 5 in Agriculture, Animal Care and Technology, and Building and Construction.
