From forestry to food production, pest management to plant maintenance, the UK and Ireland’s fast-moving land-based industries are home to hundreds of exciting, interesting jobs and careers. And we should know – we’ve been helping build a sustainable, diverse workforce for over 40 years now.
We work closely with industry bodies, employers, governments and educators to provide quality training, career guidance and partnership opportunities, giving employers and learners the skills they need to work safely and productively, while getting ready to meet the challenges of the future.
As a registered charity, we put the needs of learners and employers before profit. We have dedicated teams in England, Ireland, Scotland and Wales, all providing expert local guidance backed by years of industry experience.
In 2021, Lantra Scotland administered the hugely popular Women in Agriculture Practical Training Fund, while Lantra Wales launched a skills match service to support rural businesses and partner employers with jobseekers during lockdown.
Lantra has provided me with lots of support and mentoring, training to make sure I was fully competent and safe, along with checking in to ensure I was ready & comfortable, it's been fantastic.
Trainee Freelance Instructor
I decided it was for me early on and have enjoyed gaining the qualifications I needed. It’s taken time to earn a reputation and get established, but it’s now working well!
Instructor, Bala 4x4 Ltd
Our own internal trainers work closely with Freelance Instructors and Assessors, sharing expertise and experience. The Instructor and Customer Services team are always on hand to help us with any queries.
I’ve built up a wealth of technical and practical training delivery techniques and working with Lantra allows me to use them to the full. I have a full diary of work for the next 6 months so the relationship certainly works well for me. I would certainly recommend it!
