Shortage of vineyard managers results in new viticulture apprenticeship scheme

Plumpton College plans to offer a viticulture apprenticeship scheme next year, according to business training manager Don Cranfield.

"We have gone out to vineyard owners to find out what they want from an apprenticeship scheme," he said.

"After some initial suspicion, there is now a feeling that it's needed. There is a lack of vineyard managers."

The 12-18-month viticulture apprenticeship will be within the Government's Qualifications & Credit Framework, he said, which allows you to "mix and match units to suit the industry".
