Lantra Awards is delighted to be sponsoring the new Farming Life and Danske Bank ‘Commitment to Training Award’.
A nationally recognised Awarding Organisation with over 40 years experience specialising in training and qualifications for the land-based and environmental sector, Lantra Awards works closely with professionals, businesses and trade associations to develop training courses and qualifications which are delivered by a network of approved providers and instructors throughout the UK and Ireland.
Lantra’s business development management Paula Smyth said: “Having a competent workforce that has the skills needed to carry out their jobs safety and effectively is crucial, particularly in farming.
“The Commitment to Training Award will enable individuals/companies to celebrate their ongoing commitment to ensuring staff are fully trained and skilled in their roles. Well trained and competent staff are a great asset to any business wishing to boost productivity, profit and performance.
“Training and development opportunities can also benefit employers as they can lead to significantly improved employee retention and loyalty.
“The new award will also serve to highlight the importance of training to the wider industry and Lantra hopes it will encourage agricultural businesses to invest in training and raising skills for many years to come.”
