Do you know one of the country’s top land industries trainees? Now is the time to speak up, as Lantra Scotland has just opened up nominations for its Land-based and Aquaculture Learner of the Year Awards.
Over the last 16 years, the awards have become well-known for celebrating the achievements of young people, new entrants, career changers, training providers and employers in the land-based, environmental and aquaculture sectors, while also highlighting the importance of investing in training and skills development for businesses.
The awards are open to learners in agriculture, aquaculture, equine, fisheries management, environmental conservation, game and wildlife, horticulture, trees and timber and land-based engineering.
As well as these industry categories, there are awards for Higher Education, School Pupil and Rural Secondary Schools, the Council for Awards of Agricultural Societies, 'Jean’s Jam' for inspirational tutor, the Tam Tod Trophy for the country sports sector, Modern Apprentice of the Year, plus an overall winner and runner-up for Land-based, Aquaculture and Environmental Conservation Learner of the Year.
Finalists for all the awards will be shortlisted by an independent panel of judges early next year, with the winners announced at a ceremony at the DoubleTree by Hilton Dunblane Hydro in March.
