Here's what some of our Instructors say…
I love being outdoors and managing land and livestock, and all the skills that I have learnt to help me become an Instructor will help me teach people from all different types of backgrounds.
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
The original plan was a career in primary school teaching, but I'm now instructing off-road vehicle courses on the family farm in North Wales.
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!

Over the last two years we feel like we have really established ourselves, not just in terms of our client base, but also as part of the Lantra family.
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.
An agricultural engineer by trade, I first got involved in training in the mid 70’s with the Agricultural Training Board.
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!
What I like most about working with Lantra is that every day and every course is different. You get to meet lots of people who all have their own story to tell.
The most rewarding thing for me is seeing the moment something makes sense or clicks for the student. Usually they start off nervous and apprehensive, but as the day goes by, that moment when confidence and understanding meet, is very rewarding to see

Once I discovered the benefits of Lantra’s freelance Instructor offering, particularly the ability to work around your own schedule, the opportunity seemed like a perfect means to diversify my income.
There’s also a good camaraderie with other Instructors around the country, which is another bonus as farming can be quite an isolating and remote occupation.
