SNA Le système national d'appui (SNA) est un ensemble de ressources et de personnes mises à disposition de l'enseignement agricole pour impulser son évolution et accompagner son adaptation aux changements éducatifs, sociaux, économiques ou techniques. Il est mobilisé pour fournir des cadres de réflexion, des procédures et des outils indispensables à la mise en oeuvre de l'innovation. Plusieurs catégories d'acteurs interviennent dans le cadre du SNA : Face aux enjeux pédagogiques de l'enseignement agricole les Etablissements Nationaux d'Appui (ENFA, AgroSup Dijon, Agrocampus Ouest, SupAgro Florac, CEZ de Rambouillet) se fédèrent pour proposer diverses modalités d'appui aux équipes pédagogiques et éducatives, au service de leurs projets.
