Placements start in mid-September and run for one year full time and are based within our 17 acre ornamental and productive RHS Partner Garden at Douneside House. Current or recently qualified horticultural college students, and those without formal qualifications who would like a year of hands-on structured practical training to gain skills, proficiency and work experience in order to progress their career are encouraged to apply. Progression to a second year may also be available to trainees who wish to further their hands on training. Trainees are taught and assessed as they work alongside and learn from our experienced gardens team. Applicants should be able to demonstrate a keen interest in pursuing a professional horticultural career. Training and assessment towards the RHS Level 2 Certificate in Practical Horticulture is also included and undertaken in-house throughout the year. Additionally, partially funded training and assessment in Pesticide Application PA1/PA6 and Chainsaw Operation CS30 is also available.
