Introducing TIAH

If you own, or work in an agriculture or horticulture business, we provide tailored advice and practical tools that are needed to help develop skills and lifelong learning.

If you'd like to work in farming or growing, we are the gateway to advice, support, and training you'll need to pursue a rewarding career.

Have your say on our development

The online service is in its development phase, known as beta. This is an important process that helps identify any issues. It provides an opportunity for you to suggest changes that will improve it.    

During beta testing, you'll be able to log on for free to access a comprehensive online library and plot your training journey. 

Checking in regularly, at times that suit you, will be an investment in your career. 

We're really looking forward to hearing from our testers so we can implement any recommendations and ultimately make our service the best it can be for all our members. 

How to get started

TIAH Capability Framework

Try out our new framework which will help you assess your skills and identify any gaps.

It’s easy to plot your individual training needs using the Capability Framework - starting from where you are now, to where you want to be in your chosen farming or horticultural career.

The framework defines the important skills and knowledge needed for different jobs in farming and growing. It's being updated continuously as our industry changes.
