I have always liked being outdoors and when I was at school I used to help out when I could, gardening for friends and family. I chose Shipley College because it is convenient to get to and it offered me the apprenticeship course I was looking for. The staff are really helpful and friendly and I have made some good friends on my course. For my apprenticeship, I work at Shipley Golf Club and I am learning lots about horticulture and in particular, golf greenkeeping.

I like being outside and this practical course is a really good way to learn about horticulture and how to maintain the grounds. As part of my apprenticeship, I work at Woodhouse Grove School where I am learning about how to maintain the school grounds. I chose this course because I used to help out at my local cricket club and decided this would be a good area for me to find an apprenticeship in.The tutors are really good and can teach us lots about the industry as well as skills we can use at work.’
