Green professions

The 14 "green professions" are versatile, technically demanding and nature-related professions in the agricultural and food sector: working with people, animals and plants, producing food such as milk, wine, honey or meat, operating state-of-the-art digitally supported technology, using laboratory know-how to ensure the quality of agricultural products or protecting our forests - the "green professions" offer a wide range of professional activities to choose from.

In addition to knowledge about production and technology, the agricultural training to qualify for these professions teaches business management qualifications and service skills. Besides a basic school-leaver’s certificate, candidates for the training programmes should be interested, independent and willing to carry out ongoing advanced training.
