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.
