Friday, September 18th, 2020 | 929 Views


Dairy Australia has launched the updated Dairy Passport app to help recently hired dairy industry workers learn the skills and knowledge needed in their new field in an easier way.

It provides coaching guides, learning modules and support resources as employees are inducted over their first 90 days on the job. Victorian dairy farmers will also have access to a capability coach to provide additional training support.

The app provides an easier way for employers looking to quickly and safely develop workers’ skills, while providing the knowledge and capabilities needed for on-farm roles. Topics covered include farm safety, animal handling and essential tasks such as milking.

The app has been developed as part of the broader Pathways for People in Dairy Program. As well as Dairy Passport, the program includes an online experience allowing jobseekers interested in dairy to virtually explore and prepare for a career in the industry.

Dairy Australia’s development of Dairy Passport has been supported by $715,000 from the Victorian Government, under the Agriculture Workforce Plan.

The plan is providing targeted support to agriculture, food processing and critical food supply chain businesses during the coronavirus pandemic.
