The National Land Based College

The National Land Based College (NLBC) joins industry with education to develop qualifications and training for the land based sector. For us, land based is anything related to animals, plants, farming and our environment. We work digitally to champion careers and education, provide advice and information, and build networks to develop workforce skills.

YouTube video of Kirstie describing the relationship between City & Guilds and NLBC and their joint role in developing land based skills:

NLBC’s primary aim is to engage with land based employers and involve them far more in education, training, skills development and careers promotion. We’ll do this by linking with existing initiatives, and developing new collaborations between industry bodies, colleges and universities.

NLBC have worked with City & Guilds to produce a suite of industry-backed Technical Qualifications, which provide learners with the skills and capabilities they need to thrive in the workplace. NLBC has a network of 30 specialist colleges and universities operating from 67 campuses across the UK who provide expertise with developing and delivering these qualifications.
