Fun, Learning, and Achievement

03 July 2017

With the importance of land-based industries coming to the fore, there’s a recognised need to ensure our workforce education, training and skills are highly developed and championed.

That’s the remit of the National Land Based College (NLBC), established as a virtual college to address our farming, growing and land based industries’ workforce training and skills challenges. NLBC’s work was highlighted at the recent NFYFC AGRI Steering Group meeting with a recommendation for all YFC members to view their on-line digital hub, which is the one stop shop for land based skills.

NLBC has strong links to the majority of the specialist land based colleges and universities, whilst being employer-driven. The virtual college aims to develop collaborations and partnerships across the sector, and maximise the use of learning technologies and high quality blended learning.

With future aims of being a portal for ‘all roads to careers, skills and training’, it’s just what we’ve all been waiting for.

NLBC will specifically:

  • Attract and guide more talent and advocate the sector as a profession offering STEM careers.
  • Create an NLBC careers information portal and registration scheme, linked to existing sector initiatives - including NFYFC training.
  • Collaborate with other bodies to create careers frameworks and joint promotional tools.
  • Endorse and showcase high-quality training and development across the land based sector.

NLBC can provide you with information, opportunities, resources and career connections that will be invaluable to you throughout your land based journey.

You can register with NLBC and stay up-to-date with latest developments. Register me now!
