Fin - Wintec School of Media Arts Creative Showcase
Join us for 'Fin' our Media Arts Creative Showcase from 13 - 23 November.
The purpose of this programme is to provide students with the skills and knowledge to take responsibility for the day to day operational management of a pastoral or arable farming production system. Students will benefit by having a qualification with a Dairy Farming strand that recognises progression through the industry, as well as increased skills and knowledge acquisition to enable improved job performance.
The programme is targeted at people who are experienced workers in the agriculture and dairy farming industries, and are looking to move into, or are at, a management level position in an agricultural production enterprise.

Do you excel in your job but have no qualification to back it up? We can help you get qualified through our Recognition of Prior (RPL) Learning Tool.
While many people have gained work and life experience equivalent to that of formal study, they don't have that formal qualification to substantiate it. RPL allows you to use your current knowledge and experience towards gaining a recognised qualification through Informal Transfer of Credit.
If you are interested in applying, you can do so by emailing your profile through to: firstname.lastname@example.org.
Your profile will be forwarded to the relevant Team Manager to look at and determine if you may be eligible for recognition of prior learning. Once this has been determined, a consultation meeting will be arranged between yourself and the Team Manager. There is a $75 fee for this consultation. At the consultation, the Team Manager will discuss which modules they believe you have the experience to gain Informal Transfer of Credit for and also what documentation you will need to supply.
Our prospectuses will tell you everything you need to know about Wintec. They contains information about the Wintec campus, student life and the programmes we offer.
We offer the prospectuses in both digital and physical form.
