I like nature and being outdoors working with plants, and after a strong recommendation from my school I chose Shipley College. I like being here because staff and students respect each other and we are treated fairly. I like the location of the College to study Horticulture, as there is a lot of green space where we can work.

Daniel, 18, Horticulture Level 2 (Full-time Student)

I have always enjoyed being outside doing gardening, so after a few years working in retail I decided to make the shift and move on to pursue a career in Horticulture. I study 1 day a week at Shipley College and also work for Bradford Council on a placement. Following this course I have been offered a job working at The RHS Harlow Carr Garden in Harrogate, and continuing my Level 3 Diploma through the RHS. I was one of 2 people selected for this opportunity out of over 30 applicants and I can’t wait to take my career forward at with this invaluable experience working in a high quality gardening environment. Shipley College has given me a real insight into horticulture and the support and knowledge of the tutors has helped me secure this position for the future. I am looking forward with an open mind to see where my career will take me next. Hopefully I will continue on at Harlow Carr and keep developing my skills for the future.
