The Horticulture apprenticeship is designed for people working with landscaping firms, local councils, large hotels, schools and sports facilities. An apprentice attends college one day per week to learn and gain an understanding of plant science which relates to successful horticultural techniques. During the college day, there is a strong emphasis on improving maths and English skills which will lead to Functional Skills qualifications but will undoubtedly lead to improved career prospects.
Every apprentice will benefit from regular site visits from a qualified horticulture assessor to ensure that every learner is working towards full achievement.
“I really enjoyed studying Health and Social Care. You're treated as an adult at the College and the tutors get to know you on a personal level, they are really supportive and their knowledge is invaluable. I felt as though I grew as a person during my time there, which is so important."Caitlyn Crofts
