The one-stop-shop for land-based training and careers

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.

Improving skills and opportunities in the land-based industries

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.
