BRINGING WOODLANDS TO LIFE

Forestry Skills Plan for England and Wales

11 Feb 2019

This is part of a 5 year plan, published on 6th February, that aims to increase numbers of new entrants and improve the skills of the current workforce so that the growing forestry industry can reach its full potential.

The Forestry Skills Plan has four themes: talent attraction, skills and technical knowledge, education provision and employer support. The themes have been split into separate action plans that partners will develop and deliver over coming years.

The Forestry Skills Forum believes that industry bodies can achieve more by collaboration than working in isolation, and the plan will facilitate the long term, coordinated, targeted approach to tackling skills issues. Forum members are committed to using the plan to prioritise activity, work together efficiently and take control of the skills agenda in order to develop a skilled forestry workforce for the future.
