  • Work with industry to identify what specialist skills are needed and put plans in place to deliver training in these areas.
  • Continue to invest and encourage others to do the same to meet future needs.
  • Help deliver an independent, free at the point of access, professional frameworkto capture career pathways, CPD, training and accreditation opportunities and signpost to recognised providers.
  • Support the development and awareness of apprenticeships that meet the needs of industry and encourage take up by both industry and individuals
  • Ensure those receiving training get accredited qualifications where appropriate.
  • Promote the benefits of having good business skills and how investing time and money in these activities will help build a highly skilled, and professional workforce capable of coping with future challenges.


 

Scope of skills work

 

AHDB’s skills activity is focused on the industry’s workforce including apprentices, but not those in full-time education.

 

AHDB will support existing projects and initiatives being run by other organisations to make sure they are delivering what the industry needs in terms of skills. AHDB will also identify and address areas of market failure in design, delivery and standard of training opportunities and accredited qualifications that are critical to industry success.

  • Provide independent information, based on robust evidence, to inform Government policy with the objective of achieving a joined-up Government and industry approach to land-based education and continuing professional development.
