The Education Ministry's Office of the Education Council (ONEC) held a workshop on Friday to brainstorm over guidelines for providing vocational courses in rice-growing and dairy-farming to boost the qualifications and competency of workers as part of the government’s “Smart Farmers” programme under its Quick Win strategies.

Somratchaneekorn Ongerb, assistant to the ONEC secretary-general, told the workshop that her agency will initially focus on boosting skills and standards in the rice-growing and dairy-farming industries.

Two vocational courses for the rice-growing industry – standard rice-farm management and rice-processing industry management – will be formulated, while for dairy farming, three courses will be offered, namely milking machine design and system maintenance, raw-milk collection centre management and standard dairy farm management. The courses aim to support demands in the private sector and ensure they meet Thai standards and general good practices. 

She added that the courses and guidelines should be implemented within the 2019 fiscal year.
