We have opened the test version of our services for testing.

We have today (Tuesday, 2 May, 2023) opened free access to the test (beta) version of our online skills and learning service.

Designed to support sector workers in fulfilling their potential, our service will connect users with training and learning opportunities tailored to their individual sector, role, and skill level.  

Development opportunities

Easy to navigate, the service will locate the best development opportunities for individuals at every stage in their careers, helping them review their skills, plot their training journeys, and record achievements.    

We're inviting everyone working in farming and growing to road-test the beta version of our service for free in return for user feedback. This will allow us to add improvements and complete the next stage of service development. 

We're hoping that as many people as possible will take up the opportunity to fast-track their professional development while helping us deliver the best possible service to future users.

The service also offers a range of information about careers in farming and growing to help those already working in the industry and those who would like to.  

A truly bespoke service

Tom Bradshaw, NFU Deputy President and one of our Board members said: “What we have set out to do – deliver a truly bespoke service tailored to sector, training, and skill levels – has never been done before, so there's a lot to do.

“While we've made great strides towards achieving our goals, we need the input from end users to ensure we're offering the best possible service. That’s why we've opened up the beta version for all. Not only will testers benefit from free access and the opportunity to kick start or progress with their training, development, and careers, but their feedback will also allow us to fine-tune the service for future users.  

“Our ambition is to not only help those of us who work in the sector – we also want to support the industry as a whole while promoting agriculture as a progressive, professional, and exciting career choice - I urge people to join us in achieving this goal.”  

Career development

Janet Swading OBE, our Chief Executive added: “We know being a farmer or grower is full-on, so we make it easy for you to keep on top of your learning and career development.  

“By signing up to the beta service, you'll receive personalised learning and development recommendations and reminders to flag when you need to complete time-sensitive training.  

“Essentially, we’re here to take away the worry and give you the power to forge ahead with your career while not detracting from the day job!”
