Lantra surveys apprenticeships

Lantra has launched a two-year review into apprenticeships across the horticulture sector as part of an analysis of the training needs of land-based industries.

The sector skills council for land-based industries will be reviewing apprenticeship frameworks offered across the UK.

As well as identifying if there is a continuing need for apprenticeships, the review will provide statistics and may revise the framework to meet the needs of the industry.

An amalgamation of amenity and production horticulture apprenticeship frameworks is set to be enforced from August 2009.

Consultation on the draft structure of the qualifications to be included within the revised apprenticeship framework finishes tomorrow (10 October).
