Growers urged to consider gap-students for their farm

Applications close in just over two weeks for growers wanting a gap-student as an employee for the 2023-24 growing season as part of AgCareerStart.

As a host-farmer you will provide paid, full time on-farm employment for a school leaver or young Australian under the age of 25 for a period of 10 – 12 months.

When growers sign up they will:

• Receive a $2,000 grant

• Get support from the AgCAREERSTART team to mentor and train your participant

• Gain access to industry events and the broader National Farmers’ Federation network.

The host farmer is asked to share their skills, knowledge and industry insights with the participant, while also allowing a flexible environment that enables the participant to pursue training opportunities and attend industry events.

Register now in the AgCareerSTART program.


NNF are hosting a webinar for growers to find out more.
