Unity College Certificate of Agriculture
The Certificate of Agriculture recognises Unity College students in Year 4 to Year 12 for their commitment to Agriculture both in and outside of school.
The ‘Unity College Certificate of Agriculture’ indicates that a student has a genuine interest in Agriculture and has been willing to participate in school and extra-curricular activities to develop their practical and theoretical skills in Agriculture. Students who are interested in pursuing a career in this industry can include the certificates on their resume and in their employment portfolios.
