Over the next few years we face some key challenges including Brexit, increasing productivity, the apprenticeship levy and creating a professional, skilled and secure workforce. The focus on training and education within the AgriFood and wider land based sector has never been greater.
The Government’s new Technical Education Plan puts employers in the lead for the development of skills through Trailblazer Apprenticeships and Technical Qualifications.
