TIAH needs you!

Volunteers sought to help inform new institute’s services

The new Institute for Agriculture and Horticulture (TIAH) is seeking volunteers to help inform the development of its skills and careers services, as it prepares for launch next year.

TIAH, the first professional body to cover all sectors of farming and growing, is looking for people working at every level on farms and horticultural sites across England who are willing to offer their knowledge, opinions and experience.

There are various opportunities, from the occasional five minutes to complete an online survey on skills and careers topics, to providing careers case studies or taking part in user testing of TIAH’s new online service. Opportunities can be tailored to fit individual availability.

TIAH’s Business and Membership Manager, Tess Howe, explained: “TIAH is being established as the home of skills, careers and professionalism in agriculture and horticulture. We’ll support a thriving industry by supporting everyone working in farming and horticulture with all the advice and support they will need to pursue a rewarding career.

“But we can only achieve this if we are continuously listening to, and acting on, the feedback of those at the front line in every sector of the industry. We are appealing for people willing to spare some time to give us their honest, constructive feedback, to help ensure TIAH really does meet the needs of those in the industry.”
