Courses & qualifications used for continuing professional development in the land-based sector

This project was designed to be a short, focused study providing a snapshot of the use of non-NQF courses and qualifications through postal survey, telephone interviews and internet search.

By framing the search for courses and qualifications within the context of Continuing Professional Development the study was able to focus on provision for people who are already working within the land-based industries, as opposed to the (normally accredited) qualifications necessary to enter each industry.

Professional bodies, training and trade organisations within the land-based industries were interviewed to determine the relevance and use of the courses and qualifications identified.
