This City & Guilds qualification meets the needs of those who may wish to work within the horticultural industry or progress to further learning and/or training.

This qualification allows you to develop underpinning knowledge whilst practicing skills that could be used within employment in the horticulture industry.

Gain the knowledge and skills you need to work with plants – from maintaining turf as a groundskeeper to caring for plants as a gardener, to designing gardens and parks as a landscape artist.

For this qualification, you will be required to complete a number of assessments depending on the unit.

You may have some experience in horticulture or have gained your Level 2 qualification, you want to develop the skills to be a more senior worker or manager working in gardening, landscaping or groundskeeping, or to prepare for higher-level training. You’ll gain in-depth insight into the techniques and science of horticulture. You might cover things like plant pests and diseases, creating plant displays and putting together a landscape design brief. You’ll also gain plenty of practical experience in your choice of skills, from maintaining different types of sports turf to pruning shrubs and trees. You’ll learn with your training provider – maybe through practical sessions, group discussions or assignments. You’ll be assessed on assignments, one for each unit you complete. Depending on the size of qualification you choose, you might also do work experience and gain practical skills on the job.

Possible progression can be the HNC Horticulture – Production and Design.
