Agri­cul­ture GCSE

Country Smallholding - - Spring News -

The Na­tional Farm­ers’ Union (NFU) says it is ‘broadly’ be­hind pro­pos­als which could see a GCSE in agri­cul­ture be­ing of­fered to 13 year olds in Eng­land.

The idea has been raised in a par­lia­men­tary de­bate by the Con­ser­va­tive MP for York Outer, Ju­lian Sturdy. The plan’s back­ers say it would help chil­dren un­der­stand where their food came from and per­haps per­suade more of them into farm­ing.
