Providing information on organic food and farming in Wales
Institute of Organic Training and Advice
IOTA is a professional body for UK and Irish trainers, advisers and other extension workers involved in organic food and farming. It was borne out of a need for recognised standards of professional conduct on the one hand and better access to information, training and support for extension workers on the other.
• A unique accreditation scheme, backed by a CPD programme, which demonstrates your expertise and helps you to secure more business
• A register of accredited members accessed by farmers and by public and private organisations seeking to source advice and training
• Regular updates of technical and standards information from the principle organic organisations in the UK at reduced rates
• Access to the results of the European-wide organic research programmes
a forum for organic advisers and trainers for information exchange, meetings and representation.
The Institute is a division of Organic Research Centre (ORC); it is directed by Mark Measures and advised by a steering committee consisting of representatives from ORC, the Soil Association, OCW and independent adviser/trainer members. More
