Women working in the environmental and land-based industries in England will benefit from the award

Funding to aid women’s skills


A training grant of £450 will be offered to 670 women through Lantra’s Women and Work programme. This scheme is in its fourth year and continues to enable women in industries such as horticulture and landscaping to develop their skills.

Women and Work programme manager, Lyndsay Bird, said:  “The achievement of the programme over the first three years has been outstanding. Our skills coaches have worked with more than 850 companies helping 2,400 women to benefit from the programme and we look forward to helping even more during the next 12 months.”

Lantra is the sector skills council for the environmental and land-based industries and is licensed by the government to drive forward the new skills, training and business development agenda for the sector.
