Our Horticulture study programmes are for young people aged 16 - 25 who have an Educational Health Care Plan (EHCP) or those who are in the process of getting one. This means your course can be funded by your local borough within London and surrounding areas.
The courses are designed for young people who have struggled within mainstream education, but who want to achieve and need some additional support to get into the world of work.
All groups are kept small with 8 young people to 1 tutor, this allows for a higher level of support, as standard, so that young people can have their voice heard and have the attention and support needed. All young people have an initial assessment, and some may be identified to benefit from a higher level of support. The study programmes are individualised for each learner based on the young person's needs and. We run 4 days a week from Monday to Thursday, those who are independent travellers will get picked up and dropped off at Heathrow T5 bus stop every morning and afternoon in our minibus, and learners can also be dropped off straight to site by their parents or carers.
Following your initial assessment, you will work towards a BTEC in Practical Horticulture Skills from Pre-Entry to Level 2. Our tutors are highly qualified and experienced teaching in group sizes of 8 learners to one tutor (unless we have identified a need for a higher level of support). This means our young people get the maximum amount of support and attention whilst allowing learners to thrive and continue to positively impact their personal and social development.
Functional Skills together with the Enrichment Programme and support into employment, are also embedded throughout your individual study programme. If you are aged 16-25 and do not hold a GCSE Grade 4, we will help you work towards this level.
