Supervised Agricultural Experiences (SAEs)

     A well rounded agricultural education program is made up of three integrated parts: classroom instruction, FFA and a supervised agricultural experience (SAE). A Supervised Agricultural Experience (SAE) is a student developmental program that can be made up of multiple enterprises and activities, including research, entrepreneurial and/or placement enterprises, development of supplemental skills, learning activities and improvement projects impacting the student’s SAE, home, school or community.

     SAE’s are a required component of the total agricultural education program. Proficiency awards are an outgrowth of students’ SAE enterprises and recognize student skill development and career based competencies related to a particular award area. Proficiency award areas do not define supervised agricultural experience (SAE) programs, but provide recognition to students exploring and/or becoming established in an agricultural career pathway.
