Host an extension trainee for a year
THE Queensland Farmers’ Federation is looking for up to six host organisations to mentor early-career extension officers.
The successful host organisation can receive up to $80,000 to deliver the 12month project.
The Queensland Government is working in collaboration with Queensland Farmers’ Federation to deliver the Agricultural Work Placement program.
After the successful delivery of a pilot program that offers benefits to all those involved, they are offering organisations a chance to be involved in an improved work placement program.
Previous organisations involved in the pilot program believed the program was an excellent process to train new graduates.
It is anticipated that the trainees will develop expertise in one or more of the following areas: land management, water quality, soil health, and nutrient and pest management.
If you are interested in taking part in the program, register your interest by email to firstname.lastname@example.org.
