Raising skills. Backing business. Training, skills and workforce development are essential to business success.
That’s why at Lantra we’re committed to helping land-based and environmental businesses access the training, qualifications, skills and knowledge they need.

As a Sector Skills Council we support skills and training for people and businesses in the land-based and environmental sector.
