Course Overview


Audio-visual methodology is aimed at supporting and empowering people involved in the field of agriculture to define, promote and take full ownership of their own development, as learning is a life-long process. Skills development is a key driver of socio-economic development. Mainstreaming of agricultural development efforts is crucial to ensure congruence and effective deployment of resources.

The livestock sector plays an important part in the agricultural economy. Educated, enthusiastic livestock owners who understand agribusiness and the related methods to reduce their risks, are key to sustainable livestock farming and will play a vital role in supporting and enhancing sustainable agriculture and food security.

Establish a sound health programme. Vaccines and medicines, with improved production practices including advanced techniques and devices will assist with the prevention of diseases and optimizing the efficiency of feed-to-meat conversion.

Course Design

A way to bolster agricultural production is to develop practical agricultural education systems. A powerful way of doing this is through the use of audio visual modules which is a highly effective and tested methodology to approach, examine and impart knowledge.

This is a comprehensive series of modules that follow a step by step process and can be used in group training or self study – and are structured according to visual training guidelines. This implies defining most of the terminology used and where necessary, supporting the visual storyline with graphics and animation to enhance the learning process and ensure that sustainable knowledge is gained in the learning process.

These modules are designed to do precisely what they are meant to do – and that is to support skills development.
