NOW in our eight year Coláiste an Átha, Kilmuckridge, offer full-time QQI Level 5 and Level 6 Certificate in Agriculture courses. The College is located in a rural area with a very strong and vibrant farming community. The courses were devised to meet the needs of the Wexford Farming community. It was developed in consultation with local farmers and farming groups such as Macra na Feirme and the Irish Farmers Association at both county and national level. Relationships have also evolved with national agencies and industry-leading companies such as Connolly Red Mills, Cooney Furlong, Slaney Foods, Dairymaster amongst others which has provided the staff and students of the College with access to some of the best facilities and specialists in Ireland. On completion of the Advanced Level 6 Certificate in Agriculture (Green Cert) the holder will be classified as a young trained farmer which will have access to the National Reserve, Young farmer top-up.
The course has received a hugely positive response from the farming community of Co Wexford, with progressive local farmers in particular being very generous with their expertise and with facilitating some excellent field trips.
