A little about HOPS Education...

Agricultural Apprenticeships from HOPS.

HOPS Education was established in 2011, operating a Welfare to Work Programme in conjunction with the DWP, finding suitable work for job seekers in the production horticulture sector after a period of training provided by HOPS as a City and Guilds Accredited Centre.

With the ethos of Young Farmers being about developing young people, it was only right that HOPS operated an apprenticeship scheme in the Agribusiness sector with suitable partners and with a framework that supported the direction for the industry, HOPS aims to be at the cutting Edge of Apprenticeships in agriculture as the schemes develop.

In 2014 HOPS launched an apprenticeship scheme in conjunction with Landex colleges, local YFC county offices and potential participants, with HOPS acting as a "matching service" to develop young people in agriculture to find them the perfect Agricultural job, this could be in the Arable, Dairy, Livestock or Horticultural sector as well as game keeping courses.

Agriculture and horticulture have wonderful opportunities for people at all levels to forge a career in a plethora of vocations and sectors. If you are a young person looking for that opportunity, make sure you register with us!
