APRIL – Industry Placement Program


APRIL Industry Placement Program starts at Rivalea and SunPork

Australasian Pork Research Institute Limited (APRIL) has announced Jess Craig, Rivalea, New South Wales and Sofie Pridgeon, Wasleys Piggery, SunPork Farms, South Australia, as the first recipients under its Industry Placement Program (IPP).

APRIL’s IPP program is similar to that successfully initiated in Co-operative Research Centre for High Integrity Australian Pork and complements future APRIL student support in education and training.

The APRIL IPP program places graduates with employers able to give them hands-on experience, with specialist mentors, on-farm and in production.
