Publisher SummaryThis chapter discusses education for agriculture. Part-time day courses of 1–3 years' duration in agriculture, agricultural engineering, horticulture, poultry practice, dairy, farm management, and rural domestic economy are provided for apprentices and others at central institutions, farm institutes, Scottish farm schools, and technical colleges. Evening courses at all of these or at evening institutes can be available for those unable to get release. Some are preliminary; others lead to certificates of a variety of bodies, including regional examining unions, the City and Guilds Institute, colleges themselves, and professional institutions such as the Royal Horticultural Society. Re-apprenticeship, craft, and technician courses in building and engineering with a rural bias, including agricultural engineering up to graduateship standard, are offered at some rural technical colleges. Full-time courses at central institutions, agricultural colleges, and farm institutes cater to young workers who have already had some practical experience.
