We are an authorised provider of nationally recognised qualifications through the National Open College Network (NOCN) and AQA’s Unit Award Scheme. Our core training program is a Level 1 Award in Horticulture. This consists of 4 units, covering Health & Safety in the Workplace, Plant Propagation, Soils & Growing Media and Plant Selection. It acts as an excellent introduction to gardening for people with little or no experience. However, it also provides new learning opportunities for more experienced gardeners, and can be adapted to target your priorities, whether for leisure or professional progression. This course has a recommended learning time of 90 hours, though some have completed it in half that time. We pride ourselves on making this level of learning accessible to people who may have struggled in traditional educational environments, and also on providing employment opportunities to those who complete it.
