Training body Lantra asks historic and botanic gardens to help with survey

The Lantra Sector Skills Council is calling on staff at the country's historic and botanic gardens to participate in the second round of its industry research.

The study has so far investigated the size and scope of the industry and the second phase aims to talk to groups of garden staff about their careers, job roles, skills and training, future aspirations and how the next generation of horticulturalists can be attracted. 

Lantra’s historic and botanic garden training and development officer Pam Smith is leading the research.

Smith said:  "Being part of this research is crucial if we want the industry to be appreciated for its vital role in protecting our heritage. Those that work in these gardens have an increasingly significant role, often beyond the work in the garden, so the more people we talk to the more evidence we have to show just how important the industry is."

She continued:  "The half-day focus group sessions will take place in September in venues across England. If you can’t attend one of these but want to take part then we can talk over the phone as well."
