An apprenticeship in Horticulture is not just about flowers and long hours outside. This apprenticeship offers a huge range of opportunities for those working in:
- Production Horticulture
- Garden Centres
- Amenity Horticulture
- Private Estates and Councils
Horticulture is for those working to establish, manage, retail or cultivate plants for science, plant production or crop production or to use plants in landscapes to support the built environment, for aesthetics, transport and utility infrastructure, sport or wildlife conservation.
The Horticulture industry values the apprenticeship as an entry route into the sector as it offers apprentices the opportunity to learn the skills and knowledge by completing hands-on work experience.
Regardless of whether you currently hold a wide range of responsibilities, or specialise in a more specific role, an apprenticeship can help you learn the skills you need to succeed, and gain the qualifications to prove your knowledge.
Job Roles at Level 2 may include:
- Nursery Worker
- Fruit and Vegetable Production Worker
