Horticultural management skills review planned by Lantra to help employers

Lantra is planning a review of the skills required for management in the horticultural industry.

The review of the national occupational standards is a chance for employers to ensure their working methods are accurately reflected.

Lantra, the sector skills council for land-based industries, is asking those in the horticulture industry to get involved in the review process.

Industry partnership manager David Winn said: "It is essential we get as many people involved in this review as possible, especially as there has been such a substantial change to the skills demands in the industry over the past few years." The review process will begin with meetings with industry representatives, to take place in Warwickshire on 27 April and 29 June and continue throughout the year. An online consultation open to all is planned for later this year.

Winn added: "Only by working together can we ensure that the national occupational standards will take new business practices into account and make them fit for purpose and valued by employers."
