We’ll make it easy for you to find suitable training options and develop your skills, careers, and businesses.
Our services will include:
We’ll provide information and links on the many jobs available in farming and growing. We’ll help you understand the skills you’ll need, and the opportunities to progress in your career.
Our online service for members will allow you to record your training and achievements.
Our ambition is that this will help you to demonstrate compliance, simplify audits and record keeping. We’ll provide a transferable record of your skills and knowledge.
We’ll also provide access to HR and business support to businesses regardless of their size.
We’ll gather reliable data on the labour market, workforce needs and skills gaps. This will support the industry and help influence relevant farming and education policies.
We’re setting up a competency based framework and Professional Register.
The framework will define the important skills and knowledge needed for different jobs in farming and growing. It’ll be continuously updated as our industry changes. It’ll also have the potential to inform curriculum development in the future.
We’ll act as a co-ordinating force for all careers, skills and knowledge relevant to the sector. We’ll point you to the other initiatives happening rather than reinvent the wheel. We’ll ensure that farmers and growers are directly linked to new and innovative farming and growing practices, understand the skills required to succeed and know changes in regulations.
