Course information

On this pathway, learners will develop Horticultural skills and knowledge which will help them progress into meaningful employment.  

Learners will participate in a range of work experience activities to develop and strengthen work ready skills, industry knowledge and understanding. 

“I enjoy my work experience because I like working with new people and learning new skills.”

On this course, learners will gain knowledge about Horticulture, conservation, and ground maintenance. They will develop skills in sowing seeds, filling containers, planting trees, propagating and using tools. Learners help to run a 60ft greenhouse, large vegetable patch and also help maintain our college grounds and woodlands at Petty Pool. We also have a tree nursery which grows trees from sapling, ready for planting. Learners are responsible for producing industry standard hanging baskets, pots and other plant-based products for our on-site community shop, The Railway Shed.
