Horticulture & Landscape Supervisor Advanced Apprenticeship

Level 3 • Work-based • Horticulture, Floristry & Arboriculture department

Horticulture and Landscape Supervisors can be employed to oversee 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. A Horticulture / Landscape Supervisor can manage a site with minimum supervision, supervise a team and maintain the health and safety and security of personnel and resources. 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 transferable into other industries following further studies. 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. Do you live far from the college? No problem! Accommodation is available on site! Prior to end-point-assessment you will need to achieve these qualifications: • Emergency first aid: Level 3 award in emergency first aid at work. • Level 2 Award in the Safe Application of Pesticides using Pedestrian Hand Held Equipment (required for the application of chemical controls for vegetation control and plant health treatments) *All the above are included in the apprenticeship For more information please visit:

Grow Veg Grow Well – How to Grow Fruit and Vegetables NCFE Occupational Studies Award

Entry Level • Part-time • Horticulture, Floristry & Arboriculture department

Develop your skills in planning your edible garden. Whether you are staring from scratch with a field or want to improve your allotment planning, you will look at crop rotation, successional sowing and planning for planting tress and fruit. You will have a chance to work on plans for your own garden space and gain new skills in assessing the land using permaculture principles and creating a plan that will produce food throughout the year. This 6 week course, running 1 day a week, is a great introduction to planning your productive organic garden. Students will create a growing plan for their own (real or imaginary) growing space, including vegetables, fruit and herbs. The course will look at different approaches to planning fruit and vegetable crops, including permaculture design, forest gardening, allotment growing and using small or marginal spaces. For veg growing the course looks at successional sowing, making the most of space, incorporating green manures and fertility building, seeds varieties and seed ordering. For fruit growing the course looks at planning top fruit and soft fruit planting. Participants will sow seeds of different crops, and take a creative approach to planning their fruit and vegetable growing that they can implement through the year. This course takes place at School Farm CSA, a certified organic community market garden on the beautiful Dartington estate near Totnes, Devon. The course is delivered by experienced growers who have themselves been through the process of gaining qualifications and practical experience in organic growing before they launched their own growing enterprise. The techniques and tools used will be applicable to both the home/ allotment gardener, jobbing gardeners and people who might want to set up their own food growing enterprise.
