Plants play an incredibly important role in all our lives by providing us with oxygen and food sources. As a horticulturalist you will need to use your scientific knowledge of plants and soil to grow a wide variety of fruits, vegetables, shrubs, flowers and grass. Our courses will give you all the in-depth knowledge you need to start your career, with the option of continuing on to university study with one of our degrees at the iconic Eden Project.
We offer four options for you to gain a career in the horticultural industry depending on your GCSE results and which branch of horticulture you wish to study. Our two Level 3 courses oer you the choice of university study with progression on to our degrees at the Eden Project, or employment on completion of your course. Our Level 2 and Level 1 courses are ideal should your GCSEs not be what you expected, with the option to progress to Level 2 or Level 3.
