As one of Europe’s leading turf management shows for grounds care volunteers, professionals, suppliers, and manufacturers, the two-day SALTEX event provides the perfect platform for Lantra to reach out to people across the sector.

As well as sharing details on its highly successful Landscape Multi-Tools course, Lantra will also be on hand to provide information on its wide range of other courses in turf industries, such as horticulture, sports turf and landscaping, and also give advice on how industry professionalscan become training Instructors and Providers.

Lantra is passionate about promoting careers in the sector to both new starters and those who are looking to make a career change. We’re equally passionate about helping those already working in the sector progress, and our careers website, featuring a wealth of information on jobs, salary expectations and training routes, is perfect for anyone wanting to explore opportunities in landscape industries and help contribute to a sector that generates a massive £9 billion each year for the UK economy.

David Fisher, Lantra’s Head of Industry Partnerships for the area, said: “We’ve been reviewing and updating our Landscape tools assessed training courses with sustainability in mind.

“Our two-day Landscape Multi-Tools course, which was launched at SALTEX last year, consists of modules covering small engine maintenance, grass trimmers, hedge trimmers and leaf blowers, and will be relevant to both petrol and battery powered machines. The course has proved to be really popular and we’re looking forward to getting first hand feedback, twelve months on at the show.

“At Lantra, we recognise that, like so many other land-based industries, a shortage of suitably skilled labour is a major issue in the landscape sector. A key solution to addressing this skills gap, and growing the sector, is without doubt high quality, industry-recognised training and qualifications.

“That’s why we believe it’s crucial we attend events like SALTEX to share details of our latest training initiatives and keep our finger on the pulse in terms of what’s needed in the real world of work.

“This year, we’ll also be continuing with our drive to recruit experienced industry experts as training Instructors who can inspire, motivate, and educate both the current and future landscape workforce.”
