If you are passionate about plants and fascinated by ­flowers then a career in horticulture is the right choice for you and an apprenticeship is a great way to earn money while learning new skills at the same time. There is a wide range of careers available in this sector including employment in garden retailing, plant nurseries, edibles production, landscaping, parks and gardens, and turf care. Our apprenticeships are designed to help you focus your skills and decide which career path is best for you.

An apprenticeship will allow you to earn money while you are studying. In order to start your apprenticeship in horticulture you can either join our Level 3 apprenticeship, depending on your GCSE results, or you can choose one of our Level 2 courses.

Horticulture has a huge part to play in our day-to-day lives, from the fruit and vegetables that we eat to the turf we play
sports on, all the way through to the flowers that we plant in our gardens and use to brighten up our homes. All of these areas offer a wide range of careers, no matter which branch of horticulture inspires you.
