Thursday, May 12 from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. – Training/employment forum

Training and jobs in agriculture are often overlooked. It’s a shame because the opportunities are numerous, hence the idea of ​​a training/professions/jobs forum to see more clearly about:

  • What professions in agriculture, in rural areas or in contact with animals? What training courses are offered in the Gard? From 4th to post-baccalaureate.
  • learning : An opportunity to train while working in a company. Working in agriculture: why not? CDI and CDD proposals with Pôle emploi. How to become a farmer?
  • Animation all day on the esplanade and at the top of avenue Feuchères: dog training, horses, agricultural robot, tractor driving simulator.
  • Information stand in the presence of training establishments and professionals. There are countless areas of activity: professions with animals (breeding, dogs, horses, etc.) and plants, the environment, connected agriculture (drone, GPS, etc.) Young people can come individually or collectively accompanied by their teacher.

Many activities are on the program.
