Dairy Farming

The food and fibre workforce is diverse. The ability to work constructively with people from a range of different cultural backgrounds is a critical skill. We will investigate if including cultural competency training in qualifications is a valuable addition to how we can build and enhance those skills.

Latest update:

As we have built up our workforce development plans, we can see that there are common opportunities across multiple industries relating to cultural competency training in qualifications. To give this issue more focus and to systematically address any sector-wide issues we have combined our work in this area into a single programme of work.

Our industry teams will be closely involved in this work, and we will make sure that any unique issues or solutions for Dairy Farming continue to be visible and prioritised.
