To qualify for membership the provider must deliver significant volumes of education and training in at least six land based occupational areas, engage in an annual peer review process that confirms that standards exceed the Landex quality threshold, be appropriately resourced and operate a commercial scale agriculture and/or horticulture enterprise.

  • Operate an annual Peer Review process that challenges members to continually improve the standards of their teaching, learning, assessment and other services that they provide for clients.
  • Deliver an extensive CPD programme that offers members an opportunity to share best practice, whilst benefitting from contributions by both peers and external organisations such as Ofsted and the HSE.
  • Publish sector briefings, and carry out research that is of benefit to members and the industries that they serve.
