Lawrence, Former Horticulure Apprentice, 2012

‘I started a part-time summer course on Trees, Shrubs, and Turf at Shipley College in 2012, leading to studying a year-long Horticulture National Diploma the following autumn. After completing the course, I landed a year-long traineeship at RHS Gardens at Harlow Carr Harrogate.
Working for the RHS has been a fantastic experience that allowed me to learn so much, enabled by my time studying at Shipley College. The lecturers were very supportive throughout the course in helping me to balance the demands of outside work commitments with studying. Ever-enthusiastic teaching split between field and classroom work helped us to make sense of a vast subject. I’m currently working as an Intern at Longwood Gardens in Pennsylvania, USA where I’m continuing to learn and become more and more excited by the possibilities of horticulture.’
