Horticultural Technician Level 3 – 3 positions available
A fantastic opportunity to earn and learn
We are recruiting now for apprentices and looking for keen and enthusiastic people to join our team of horticulturists and start a career in commercial plant production. The course is run in conjunction with the Warwickshire Group of Colleges (Pershore College Campus) and runs over a two year period (starting this Autumn), with five weeks per year spent studying at the college.
Whilst working here at Bransford, apprentices will be rotated around all departments, so they gain a broad experience of nursery practices, including propagation, potting, crop establishment, feeding, pest and disease management, and despatching. During your study time at college, apprentices will learn all the underpinning theoretical knowledge to support the practical and technical skills gained whilst at the nursery.
Having a GCSE grade A-C/9-3 (or equivalent) in English and Maths is desirable, but not essential, but the willingness to gain these during the course is essential, the training of which is organised by us and the college.
