Horticulture

Do you enjoy being outdoors and have an interest in nature or greening the built environment? Horticulture is not just about gardening! Learn both the practical skills and theory for the design, construction & maintenance of outdoor spaces.

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.
