Careers, skills and salary survey
This survey was initiated by PlantNetwork through discussions at the Writtle conference in 2002 – Training in Heritage and Botanical Horticulture. Lantra (Land-based industries training organisation) has acted as the lead organisation, obtaining funding to conduct a major survey of nearly 2,000 people working in the sector throughout Great Briatin. 1,500 questionnaires were sent out, and 8 Focus-group meetings took place around the country. A meeting was held on 17 April at the RHS in Vincent Square to examine the results, and the 180-page report has now been completed.
