As the leading regional provider of land and environmental education, Plumpton College is committed to providing the future skills required by employers for the transition to a highly sustainable, zero carbon economy.
Alongside a current £15m investment in our facilities for students, Plumpton College are delighted to launch a highly innovative national project that will enable the development of green technologies and provide the skills and education for sustainable land management and food production.
Nationally, sectors such as land management, horticulture, agriculture and viticulture are already in critically short labour supply, and needing more employees to be trained at a higher level than ever before.
This project will see the College working with its existing network of over 2000 employers and key industry groups such as the recently introduced, government backed, Institute for Agriculture and Horticulture to ensure current and future labour needs are understood and mapped to existing and new programmes of study and training. The project scope will look to develop a new technical curriculum focusing on higher (Level 4 and 5) technical qualifications and resources which are applicable to the wider land management, agriculture, horticulture, viticulture and marine environment sectors.
With a £9m Agri-Food investment programme, a recently opened Centre of Horticulture Excellence at One Garden Brighton and a further investment planned for the College’s leading Veterinary Nursing and Viticulture programmes, Plumpton College is well placed to lead on these new curriculum developments.
