Horticulture & Landscape Operative Intermediate Apprenticeship

Level 2 • Work-based • Bicton College


Horticulture and Landscape Operatives can be employed to work in public parks and gardens, green spaces and historic gardens, private gardens and estates or in production nurseries and retail outlets. Many businesses will be specialised in their activities; such as grounds maintenance (soft-landscape) or landscape construction (hard-landscape). Soft- landscaping includes the establishment and maintenance of plants and cultivated areas. Hard-landscaping includes establishment of hard surfaces and structures in addition to the establishment of plants in cultivated areas. The distinct nature of these two specialisms means very few businesses can offer the full breadth of skills and therefore two options are available for this occupation; horticulture and landscape construction. The employment area will dictate the option pursued. Work is generally based outside and undertaken throughout the year, so apprentices will frequently work outside in all weathers. Often people new to the industry will start in a ‘hands-on’ role covering a range of practical tasks, with specialist skills being learnt through progression. A wide range of machinery and tools are used and additional training may be required depending on the nature of the works undertaken. Working and learning in the horticulture and landscape industries is rewarding, offers a diverse range of employment opportunities and includes a range of skills that are transferrable into many other industries. While learning the practical side of Horticulture with your employer, you will also be required to attend college on a block release programme. While studying at Bicton College you can take advantage of the College’s estate, which houses an arboretum with veteran and specimen trees, grounds, gardens Inc. a walled garden, glasshouses, growing tunnels and over 200 acres of extensive parklands with plenty of opportunities for you to develop your Horticulture skills.

Prior to end-point-assessment you will need to achieve these qualifications: • Emergency first aid: Level 3 award in emergency first aid at work. • Pesticides: Level 2 Principles of Safe Handling and Application of Pesticides Guidance OR Level 2 Award in the Safe Use of Pesticides *All the above are included in the apprenticeship While learning the practical side of Horticulture with your employer, you will also be required to attend college on a block release programme.

Ecologist (degree) ST0577

Level 7 • Work-based • Eden Project


There is a crisis in the ecology sector with too few suitably experienced ecologists to oversee UK biodiversity policies. There is also a need for ecologists to embrace and understand changing priorities and legislation, with significant opportunities for the UK sector to learn from international standards and best practice in ecological restoration. The Level 7 Ecologist Apprenticeship is designed to provide an accessible work-based learning route as an alternative to a traditional university model, for employers to recruit and develop ecologists in their organisation. At the start of the UN Decade on Ecosystem Restoration we must to do more than mitigate against further ecological deterioration by actively restoring damaged and destroyed habitats to protect and increase biodiversity and enhance ecosystem services - this requires skilled professionals to lead #GenerationRestoration. The MSc Land and Ecological Restoration embedded within the apprenticeship standard aims to develop a thorough understanding of how to set success criteria and identify restoration priorities, engage stakeholders, plan, implement and monitor programmes of restoration, evaluate the success of activities, and plan aftercare. A significant advantage of the apprenticeship delivery model is the opportunity for enhanced knowledge exchange as apprentices from diverse backgrounds share their experiences with each other, with their tutors, and with their employers. Apprentices at Eden Project Learning will learn from professional UK ecologists and engage with a global community of restoration practitioners. Key principles and standards developed by professional bodies including the Chartered Institute of Ecology (CIEEM) and Society for Ecological Restoration (SER) are embedded in the programme to prepare apprentices for professional recognition.
