Student Horizons, via their Year 10 Experiential Careers Programs (ECP), are partnering with MLA to help further school students’ knowledge of how red meat is produced and how the industry operates.

The ECP is a 3-month pilot program of learning that, given ongoing Covid-19 challenges will mainly take place online. It is designed to broaden students’ real-world experience through engaging with a wide range of partners, delivering credible industry-led content to build awareness about the red meat industry, on-farm production practices and supply chains. Many young people who live in the big cities have little exposure to our primary industries and are unaware of the many career opportunities available in the Ag and Food sector.

MLA’s school education program aims to engage students and teachers through education partnerships that increase participant’s knowledge of the red meat and livestock sector, and specifically to learn more about the industry’s positive environmental management practices, animal health and wellbeing, and the role of red meat in a healthy lifestyle.
