Jack Beesley,
Career: Senior Gardener at the National Trust gardens at St Michaels Mount.
Studied: Level 2 in Horticulture (2008)

“The course gave me the foundation to pursue my chosen career in horticulture. I use all the information learned on a day to day basis working on St. Michaels mount. It was the perfect start!

I loved working outside on the practical parts of the course, I found this put what we had learned in the classroom to practice. My form tutor Mike Harrington also sticks in my mind. He was always passionate about the learning and encouraged all of us that this was a pathway that could lead to a fulfilling career. Which in my case, luckily, is what has happened.”
