week, the government announced that employers would be put firmly
in the driving seat to tackle skill shortages in their sectors as
part of the further expansion of Sector Skills Councils (SSCs).
SSCs are independent organisations tasked with tackling the skills
and productivity needs of their sector throughout the UK.
in March as one of the first five "Trailblazer" SSCs,
Lantra is licensed by government to drive forward the new skills,
training and business development agenda for the environmental and
land-based sector. One of Clare's first tasks as Industry Partnership
Manager is to develop an individual action plan for the Equine industry
that focuses on identifying and developing solutions to its training
and business development needs.
"One of Lantra's main aims as a Sector Skills Council is to
identify and fill skills gaps across the environmental and land-based
sector, including the equine industry," says Clare. "My
job involves working with and listening to the needs of employers
and other representatives from across the industry to do just that."
is therefore critical that employers from the industry get in touch
and help us develop an action plan for addressing those needs,"
continues Clare. "We recognise that employers are experts in
their own field who know first hand the requirements of their industry,
so we are keen to listen. This is your chance as an employer to
take the lead and tell government what action needs to be taken."
