Developed in close partnership with our growers, the Soil Association Organic Apprenticeship Scheme is a two year work-based placement with an organic farmer or grower. Farm based work is combined with a series of structured seminars to build upon the practical knowledge gained out in the field.
The Organic Apprenticeship Scheme produces well-rounded and experienced individuals with specialist skills and a broad knowledge of organic agriculture and food businesses.
So far our apprentices have been primarily on horticultural placements. However this year we have started to offer placements in agriculture and on mixed farms.
