City & Guilds NPTC

City & Guilds Land Based Services (formerly NPTC) is the UK's largest awarding body in the land-based sector - encompassing agriculture, horticulture, forestry, animal care, conservation, machinery and more.

Our aim is to promote competence and professionalism in the workforce of the land-based and related industries by the encouragement of continuous learning and the recognition of skill.

City & Guilds Land Based Services creates qualifications that reflect the industry's needs, working closely with Lantra, the Sector Skills Council for land-based training and education. Many give workers vital licences to practice in their industry.
