Charlotte Jeffrey studied Agriculture at Nottingham University, after her studies she began full time self-employment in dog training providing one to one and group training sessions for owners and their pets.
She worked in Agronomy at Branston Ltd in 2011, where she gained a Foundation BASIS award and worked across the UK monitoring potato crops destined for UK supermarkets and working in quality control laboratories ensuring potatoes are meeting the specification requirements.
Charlotte began working at Brackenhurst in 2014 as an Agricultural Lecturer and has taught in agriculture, horticulture, wildlife, animal and access to higher education.
Charlotte enjoys working within the agricultural sector as it is constantly changing. She regularly takes the students on visits to agricultural events and farms to ensure they are gaining relevant and up to date knowledge.
Charlotte would suggest that students study at Brackenhurst because of the opportunity to be surrounded by the farming estate and therefore students have regular contact with the farm and it’s top quality facilities. The course not only provides students with relevant practical skills it also prepares them for work in higher education.
