Four veterinary officers from India visited the Limestone Coast this week for the commencement of an intensive training program developed by TAFE SA in conjunction with private Indian dairy company Parag Milk Foods.
The Enterprise Dairy Trainer Program included a study tour throughout the region delivered by TAFE SA.
“It is an intensive study program to ensure dairy farm training staff become familiar with competency based training and are exposed to the Australian Dairy industry and practices,” City Mount Gambier International Engagement Manager Bruce Rodda said.
The City of Mount Gambier hosted a morning tea for the delegation to gain further insight into the program to deliver world-class dairy industry standard training into the international market.
We have a keen interest in this program. We see the opportunity to fine-tune the delivery of agri-services into the China market on the back of the good work Tenison Woods College are currently doing with education via the Friendship City arrangements with Baotou and Luan.- City Mount Gambier International Engagement Manager Bruce Rodda
“We see the Indian Enterprise Dairy Trainer Program as a timely local initiative given the population growth and skill shortages within our region highlighted within the Limestone Coast Regional Growth Strategy.”
