TRAINING NEEDS ASSESSMENT & CURRICULUM DEVELOPMENT IN THE AGRICULTURE AND FOOD SECTORS
The Mauritian agricultural sector is currently faced with many challenges. Today, against a background of increasing trade liberalisation, climate change and stronger competition, Mauritius has reviewed its vision on agriculture and is moving from a traditional to a modern agriculture, based on the adoption of new emerging technologies. The aim of the Mauritian Government is to amplify sustainable agricultural production in order to meet the increasing food demand of the population as well as to raise exports in order to increase the country’s revenue, thus ensuring food security in the country.
In order to align ourselves with the objectives of the Government, The Faculty of Agriculture needs to assess regularly the relevance of its programme of studies and its the teaching and learning environment.
As a past graduate your views are important to us. On this blog you will have the opportunity to engage into fruitful discussion that would help us to bring innovation in our courses and to equip graduates with the necessary skills and knowledge that would respond to the needs of the stakeholders of the agricultural and food sectors.
