Are you teaching in agriculture, primary industry or other subject areas that lead to careers in agrifood?

Would you like to easily access up-to date information and education resources on specific industries?

Industry bodies have an interest in providing industry information. It raises their profile. Often they have education resources developed specifically for use in the classroom.

AgriFood Skills Australia has a wealth of information about skills development, training packages and a comprehensive links page.  Reports and presentations from the 2008 Conference are available.

The Australian Government site for the Department of Agriculture, Fisheries and Forestry has general information on all Agrifood industries and links to various industry and state organisations although no specific education resources pages. They also have a Resource Management page with lots of great information. The Australian Government Agriculture portal has links to an extensive list of industries.
