Free Visitor Courses & Sessions: 6th July

We are looking forward to welcoming Martin Sampson and Geraint Jenkins from Grounds Training to SAGE 2022 on Wednesday 6th July.

With 75 years of grounds management experience between them, they moved into education and training in order to pass their knowledge on to others and upskill the next generation of ground care professionals. Both are Lantra instructors and end point assessors, City & Guilds NPTC instructors and assessors, and UK Rural Skills instructors. Additionally they are visiting instructors at several land-based colleges and Martin is a Lantra Technical Verifier.
