Horticulture Level 3

Our Horticulture Level 3 course is designed to help you identify, maintain, and care for plants, as well as to teach you propagation techniques, the growth cycle of plants, and how to use tools and machinery. You will also gain knowledge of the industry through talks and visits. This course is perfect for those who are serious about a career in horticulture or want to build on their skills and industry awareness. To enrol in this course, you will need four GCSEs at grade 4 or above, a Level 2 qualification in Horticulture or a related subject, or proven academic ability.

The course will be delivered at our campus in beautiful Saltaire one day per week, with additional personal study required through our virtual learning environment. You will also be expected to complete a work placement in the industry. Successful completion of this course can lead to employment in garden maintenance, landscaping, or plant nurseries or progression to further study at foundation degree level.

This BTEC National Diploma in Horticulture is great whether you are new to the industry or want to further your skills, and can provide you with a range of horticultural skills and an awareness of the scope of the Horticulture industry. With the opportunity to progress onto further study at level 4 or into industry, this is an excellent investment in your future.
