Evidence successfully submitted on behalf of IOL to the Environment, Food and Rural Affairs Committee

Andy Robinson (IOL Emplyers Group) has successfully submitted evidence on behalf of IOL to the Environment, Food and Rural Affairs Committee and it has now been published it on the committee’s website. Direct link to the letter from IOL here. 


The response addressed these questions:


- How can the understanding and awareness of career opportunities in land-based sectors be improved among children and young adults?

- How effective is the education system at supporting young people seeking careers in land-based sectors? For example, are routes such as T levels and apprenticeships fit for purpose?

- What more can be done to facilitate new entrants, including those from non-rural backgrounds, into land-based sectors, including those considering a career change?

- Are colleges offering land-based education accessible and available to those seeking to enrol in courses? Are there gaps in coverage and if so, how can these be addressed?

- What role should schools, colleges, universities, and local and central government play in promoting and supporting careers in land-based sectors?

- Are there domestic or international examples of best practice in successfully promoting educational opportunities and careers in land-based sectors?
