BMC has a rich heritage as a leading provider of land-based courses in the East Midlands, and for generations, students have gained excellent experience on our 850 acre Brooksby campus estate, getting hands-on training in every aspect of Horticulture. We offer the perfect place to study as we are able to provide a practical focus, combining theory with real-life experience.
4 GCSEs at Grade D/3 or above including English OR Level 1 Horticulture and Entry 3 Functional Skills.
Our Horticulture students have gone on to secure jobs as landscapers, nursery and garden centre managers, gardeners, grounds-keepers, estates managers and even plant breeders.
Pathways include hard and soft landscaping, garden design, production and retail, and sports turf.
Upon successful completion of this Level 2 course, students may progress onto a Level 3 land-based course here at BMC. Alternatively, students may wish to continue onto an apprenticeship or into employment within the industry.
