PROFILE

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 maintenance, ordering, pool testing and more.”
