Finley Loader Horticulture and Maintenance Apprenticeship - Bedruthan Steps Hotel
Finlay successfully completed his horticulture apprenticeship at Bedruthan Hotel & Spa and is now continuing his training.
“Throughout my apprenticeship the tutors at the College were really
approachable and the best thing about my job are my colleagues at
the Bedruthan Hotel and Spa who are a top team. Since completing
my horticulture apprenticeship I have enrolled on to a maintenance
apprenticeship. The tasks I carry out on a day-to-day basis are extremely
varied but could include planned preventative maintenance, reactive
