Gareth Henderson

Multiskilling Programme

My name is Gareth Henderson and I live our family farm, near Bushmills.  I’ve always had an interest in Agriculture and we have pedigree Charolais, Pedigree Dorset Horns and Pedigree Texel ewes at home.

On completing my GCSE’s I looked at different options to continue my studies. Although I wanted to study Agriculture I also wanted to study a trade area.  Multiskilling gave me the opportunity to do both.  I enrolled at the Northern Regional College to study joinery but attended Greenmount Campus for a series of intensive weeks training completing a Level 2 Diploma in Work Based Agriculture.  I have found this course to be a great way to learn and work at the same time.
