Executive leadership in the Australian meat industry – The vocational graduate certificate and diploma in agribusiness

In 2007-8, AMPC and MLA funded a research project to research options to provide further development for students who have completed the Advanced Diploma in Meat Processing program, or who are entering senior company positions. This formed stage one of a three-stage project. The research identified that the most suitable option was for the development of a Vocational Education and Training Graduate Certificate and Diploma.

Stage 2 of the project occurred during 2008-10 and involved the development of suitable units and the accreditation of the new qualifications – the Vocational Graduate Certificate and Diploma in Agribusiness. These qualifications are due to be endorsed by the National Quality Council and included in the MTM11 Australian Meat Industry Training Package later this year.

In Stage 3 of the project, undertaken from March – June 2011, a delivery strategy and resources for the first few Units were developed.

It was anticipated that Registered Training Organisations would accept students into the program in 2012.
