Telford delivers NZQA accredited sub-degree programmes with a rural focus, including general agriculture, dairy, vet technician and equine programmes.

As part of New Zealands recovery, Telford is hosting Agricultural Contractor Training to retrain individuals affected by the SARS-CoV-19 pandemic. This will ensure sufficient contractors are available for the 2020/21 season, which has previously relied on overseas contractors from countries such as England and Ireland.
