Lantra is the Sector Skills Council that supports skills and training for people and businesses in the land-based and environmental sector, covering 16 occupational areas grouped around:

  • Land management and production
  • Animal health and welfare
  • Environmental industries

Estate maintenance and estate management roles are integral to the future sustainability of the sector. The Modern Apprenticeship in Rural Skills embraces activities associated with agriculture (including farm and croft tenancies), forestry and woodland management, sporting use of land, renewable energies, tourism and leisure activities, residential and commercial property, and conservation management.

LANTRA has developed a Modern Apprenticeship in Rural Skills at two different levels to support the needs of the sector in Scotland.
