The Franklin Institute of Agri-Technology (Franklin Agritech) is located south of Auckland & Tauranga on the fringes of major horticulture growing areas of New Zealand.
Both the training centres are housed on horticulture production sites where students can grow plants themselves and learn hands-on growing skills. The Institute is NZQA registered and offer NZQA accredited courses in Horticulture production. It operates as part and parcel of Rupex Group of companies which has been servicing the greens-supply chain for more than 20 years in New Zealand.
Horticulture is facing acute shortage of skilled manpower and offers long term career building opportunities to both men and women.
