Education and Careers in Land-based Sectors


In this inquiry the Environment, Food and Rural Affairs Committee will explore the relationship between education and the land-based industries and the effectiveness of current primary, secondary, further and higher education in embedding awareness and equipping students with the skills and knowledge necessary. 

The committee will examine existing and potential initiatives aimed at promoting the career opportunities in land-based sectors and will consider examples of best practice for this in the UK and abroad, and consider what more can be done to facilitate new entrants into land-based industries, including people from non-rural backgrounds and those considering a career change. It also will consider the accessibility and availability of land-based courses and how equipped institutions are to teach them.
