Last chance for Lantra nominations

The deadline for nominations for Lantra Scotland’s Land based and Aquaculture Learner of the Year Awards is just 10 days away.


Wed, 01 Nov 2017



Lantra, the sector skills council for land-based, aquaculture and environmental conservation industries, is asking employers, colleges, teachers and trainers to put nominations in by the closing date on November 10.

Kevin Patrick, director of Lantra Scotland, said: ‘Judges on our independent panel take their role very seriously and so want to ensure that they have enough time put aside to look at all the award entries carefully.

‘Our awards ceremony is in March 2018, and so we need the nominations in November for shortlisting.

‘Being nominated for an award is a great achievement and provides learners with confidence and self-belief, even if they don’t go on to get an award.

‘Finalists and winners on the night get even more from it, and we are always delighted to see what effect there is on the development of up-and-coming talent in the land based and aquaculture industries.

‘The individual personalities and stories that come out are very impressive, and we’re really looking forward to seeing this year’s crop of talent.’

Lantra relies on help from across the sector to run the awards, and there are still opportunities to get involved in providing support.
