About Us

TRAINING GROUP

The Group exists to provide it's members and non-member landscapers and associated enterprises with a professionally organised training service.

The group is managed by a committee of elected members, who are landscapers.


OBJECTIVES:-

• To help identify training needs
• To implement planned systematic training programmes to meet those needs
• To develop courses in line with customer requirements
• To provide quality, cost effective training using skilled and trained instructors.
• To work with the Industry Sector Skills Council and Trade Associations to develop and provide appropriate training for the industry.
• To provide the best advice on training and development matters.

PROFESSIONAL TRAINING SERVICE

The training service ranges from providing telephone advice and assistance, to complete training support including skills audits, training needs analysis, and tailored training programmes.

We are members of the Lantra Professional Register of Training Providers. Instructors engaged by the Training Group are registered with Lantra or with an equivalent nationally recognised body.

Courses and other services are priced very competitively, and benefit from our personal approach and efficient service.

Using the network of training providers and colleges in the region, the group can access the most appropriate training for your needs.


MEMBERSHIP

The level of subscriptions is set at the Annual General Meeting. Details of subscription rates and other costs are available from the Training Officer.


TRAINING COURSES

Course schedules are devised according to demand. Where possible the courses are held in-company, on-site or at a suitable venue with specialist facilities where needed.

The instructors and tutors are experts in their subjects and are all assessed and updated on a regular basis.

In general the courses organised by the group fall into one of the following categories:

•Landscaping (Hard, Soft, Interior)
•Machinery Operation & Maintenance
•Legislation
•Health & Safety
•Management & Supervision

Course titles and content can be developed to suit an individual company's need.

Most courses are recognised by a National Training Organisation such as Lantra Sector Skills Council or C.I.T.B. Many courses support learning towards NVQs.

The Group aims to keep abreast of industry developments and arrange appropriate training, e.g. New Roads and Streetworks Act.

Where applicable Competence Assessment can be organised or included at the end of the course, e.g. Chainsaw, Pesticides, Forklift.
