Minister Poots outlines plans for re-opening the CAFRE campuses in September

1 Mins read

DAERA Minister, Edwin Poots MLA, has outlined the teaching, learning and practical experiences that students can expect when they join or return to the College of Agriculture, Food and Rural Enterprise (CAFRE) in September.

Minister Poots said: “CAFRE is currently making plans for new and returning students in September.

“Face-to-face delivery is the preferred option for our courses but only where space is available to allow social distancing in line with Government guidelines. Where this is not possible, CAFRE will provide remote learning for lectures using digital learning technologies. This has already proved very successful when introduced for students during the last academic year.

“Practical learning is the unique feature of all our programmes at Greenmount, Loughry and Enniskillen campuses. The applied nature of the learning sets CAFRE graduates apart from their peers and is one of the main reasons that over 95 per cent of them are either in employment or further study following graduation.

“CAFRE will therefore continue to provide students with practical learning opportunities in line with the social distancing guidelines in place at that time. Likewise teaching facilities, student accommodation, dining rooms and libraries will be available whilst following the prevailing Public Health Agency guidance.

“The safety and well-being of students and staff at CAFRE is my highest priority and I trust that this provides reassurance to prospective students and their families about our plans for September.”
