Franklin Institute delivers horticultural training on a 24-acre commercial production site and is part of the Rupex Growtech Limited group of companies. This enables the students to combine theory and practice on the same site. Teachers are well qualified, have relevant international experience and, being originally from overseas, combine knowledge of different agri-climatic situations with considerable experience in New Zealand. Students know about the support available, feel well informed about the programme before they enrol, and have a high level of satisfaction with their time at Franklin Institute. All graduates are employed in the horticulture industry.
