“The competition has given them experience that I could never have given them in the classroom. I’m immensely proud of them. The Belgian trip for myself and the girls to get to go to another country to see the different kinds of farming over there was a big highlight.
All of the training they’ve got from ABP in terms of the interview days and preparing themselves to communicate was just great.” [Supervising teacher, finalist team 2022]
We are delighted to notify you in advance of the new academic year that ABP’s award-winning education partnership programme, the ABP Angus Youth Challenge, will open for new entries in September 2023.
Participation develops work-life skills and direct experience in the agriculture/agri-food sector for Year 11 pupils. The programme has been designed to support learning outcomes in a range of subjects including Agriculture, Home Economics, Maths, English Language, Business Studies, Geography and the Sciences. Finalist projects are linked to GCSE subjects undertaken.
Entering and taking part also counts towards the skills section of the Bronze Duke of Edinburgh’s Award, Bronze Gaisce – The President’s Award or Bronze Duke of Edinburgh’s International Award.
