Pigs, Poultry and other livestock farming

Like many of our industries, attraction and retention of workers is an issue. More flexible approaches to qualification delivery and assessment that support a diverse range of learners, including those with disabilities, may enable the industry to access a wider scope of workers. We will work with providers to encourage more flexibility. 

Latest Update:

As we have built up our workforce development plans, we can see that there are common opportunities across multiple industries relating to delivery and assessment, and attraction and rentention. 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 Poulty, Pigs and other livestock continue to be visible and prioritised.
