Progress through Partnerships in Countryside Management and Agriculture

With industry preferring to employ students with real-world experience, Agriculture subject area staff have made concerted efforts to outreach to industry to produce partnerships of a true symbiotic nature – of considerable value to the participating organisations as well as the lucky students.

On-going examples include crop trials work with Frontier Agronomy and Berrys at Lamport Hall; woodland management at a Site of Special Scientific Interest with Natural England and the Ginpat Charitable Trust; habitat management and ecological survey work at Pitsford Quarry with Peter Bennie Ltd; forestry and rare species work with Kelmarsh Hall and a funded dormouse conservation project with the Forestry Commission and the British Ecological Society.

Exposure to these projects gives Moulton graduates a unique opportunity to engage in cutting edge knowledge transfer and research projects, strengthening their vocational experiences and ultimately improving their employment prospects.
