You’re just starting out in the horticulture industry and want a good basic understanding of the work involved in the industry and the different options available – enough to succeed in a job in the sector or move on to further study. You can choose from a short Award, a longer Certificate or an in-depth Diploma.
You have some knowledge and basic skills in the horticulture industry – probably from a role where you work under supervision. You want to increase your skills and gain a formal qualification so
that you can take on more responsibility at work or move on to further study.
You’ve worked in the horticulture industry for some time – you have plenty of experience, and you might already supervise others or manage an area of land. You want to demonstrate your skills,
perhaps to move into a more senior role or on to further study.
