Sinead says that without completing the BSc in Argiculture, she wouldn't be lucky enough to be in the position that she is in today

"Since graduating I have been working in the Agri Business industry. I am currently working with Irish Country Meats, a large sheepmeat processing facility in Co. Wexford, and have been recently promoted to Quality Manager at the site. 

I manage a team of 4 people full time and work closely with the Department of Agriculture, Customers and Third Party Food Business Operators to ensue every product we sell meets the food safety requirements.

I found the course a huge benefit to where I am today and without it I can safely say I wouldn't be in the position I am as Quality Manager of such a large company. 

I feel the interaction with Kildalton College is a great help and the practical element is very beneficial to any role that could be undertaken by a Graduate upon finishing the course. I would definitely recommend it."
