The end of an apprenticeship period is a key time for reflection. This reflection practice will serve four purposes:
1) Provide feedback into improving and strengthening the apprentice program and the farm.
2) Allow apprentices to assess, review and record their professional development during the apprenticeship period.
3) Document learning and insights so they can be shared with funders of the Apprenticeship program.
4) Assist in creating an individual development for the apprenticeship going forward. Or, acknowledge at this time the apprenticeship won’t formally continue but identify possible future ways to contribution to a vision of a more sustainable agriculture on the planet.
