The research, standards and qualification development provides a ‘voice for the sector' and aims to represent the views and opinions of employers working in the Land-based and Environmental industries.

Our research reports provide intelligence and insight on our industries and encourage debate on key labour market and skills issues. They also provide essential reading for key decision makers, employers, trade bodies, college lecturers, career guidance professionals, human resources and training managers, and policy makers.

One of those policies we would like to help influence would be the policy for food, farming and the environment post Brexit.  DEFRA are hosting a "Health and Harmony: the future for food, farming and the environment in a Green Brexit" consulation looking for all those with an interest in the future of food, farming and the environment to review and respond. more information can be found at this  link.

Our standards and qualifications meet industry changing needs and ensure that there are skilled, knowledgeable, qualified workers.  We know how important these standards and qualifications are, so we regularly review them to keep them up-to-date.
