My dad and grandad both pursued a career in Horticulture so naturally, I have followed in their footsteps. Shipley College was local for me and is where my family have studied. I really enjoy understanding how to use the different types of machinery on the course. After the course, I would like to progress to the Horticulture Level 3 course, and eventually work abroad.

Lewis, 16, Horticulture

I have a passion for gardening and working outdoors. The Horticulture course is a great way to help me achieve this. I chose Shipley College because my friends and family have been here and recommended it. After my course, I am interested in advancing on to the Level 3 course or finding an apprenticeship. One day, I would like to open my own Horticulture business.
