National Occupational Standards for Horticulture
This received from Lantra... Responses need to be in by 26th Feb, thanks Michelle
I am pleased to inform you that the draft revised National Occupational Standards for Horticulture are now available for public consultation.
Over the past six months Lantra has worked with experts from all aspects of the Horticulture sector to identify the skills, knowledge and understanding required for those working in Horticulture. The revised Standards reflect new techniques and legislation.
The Standards are available to view and comment on at http://www.consult-on.com
. They have been grouped into subjects so that you can select areas of particular interest to focus on, for example Horticulture – Heritage and botanic.
Feedback from everyone working or volunteering in horticulture (sports turf, parks and gardens, production horticulture), is key to ensuring that the Standards accurately reflect industry skills, knowledge and understanding. I would be very grateful if you could share this message with colleagues, and promote the consultation as widely as possible via contact networks, web site and other publications. I have attached a summary describing what National Occupational Standards are and how they can be used, but please let me know if you require any additional information. The consultation closes on the 26th February 2012.
We look forward to receiving your comments.
