Northland College

Our two programmes prepare students with skills and knowledge for a career in Hospitality or Agriculture / Horticulture. Technical and general courses provide the students theory and hands-on learning experiences.

We are fortunate to have a working farm attached to the school which assists with delivering the Telford units of work.  The practical and theory units give the learner a grounding in Agriculture.

The Hospitality/Cookery programme is run through the ‘Hub’, our on site catering area.  Our learners work in a commercial kitchen and have the assistance of NorthTec as their Tertiary provider.
