About Farm Ed

Farm Ed, established in 2019, is a private organisation dedicated to providing QQI validated, quality assured education and training programmes to the agricultural sector. The centre offers programmes that lead to the QQI Agriculture 5M20454 and the QQI Farming 6S20487 awards i.e., The Green Cert.
Programmes at Farm Ed are delivered by professionally qualified tutors who have many years of practice in their chosen area of expertise. Skills demonstration development and assessment activity is supported by state-of-the-art on-farm facilities and resources.

Programmes are scheduled on Friday evenings and all day Saturday.

Due to Covid -19 restrictions classes are now online with the farm days taking place when it is safe to do so.

January 2022 intake is now full.

Further cohorts will commence in September 2022 and we are now taking names.
Details, of the running of the September cohorts, will be available in 2022 and we will only open the application process then.
