Key Actors – Agricultural Education and Training Systems

Key Components of Agricultural Education and Training Systems (AET) are as follows:

Tertiary educational institutions such as agricultural universities or faculties and colleges of agriculture within comprehensive universities which can be viewed as the apex of this system. Management responsibility for tertiary education is usually entrusted to ministries of education.

Polytechnics, institutes, or colleges that prepare technicians at the diploma level (the postsecondary, sub-degree level) also typically fall under the responsibility of ministries of education. This category of education, often termed “agricultural technical–vocational education and training” (ATVET) or “vocational education and training” (VET), prepares technicians in a variety of specializations in agricultural subsectors.

 • Secondary schools under the management of the ministry of education may offer agriculture as an elective but in most developing countries these programs have a checkered history, influenced by the qualifications and experience of the teachers assigned to the subject and the motivation of the students who enroll.

Agricultural training centers or training institutes frequently offer in-service training to public sector employees, farmer training to farmers, and short courses on demand to others in the public or private sectors. Ministries of agriculture are usually responsible for agricultural training programs.
