This Advanced Apprenticeship in Amenity Horticulture covers a vast range of horticulture occupations, and would be a good choice for anyone working outdoors and with plants. Amenity Horticulture includes landscaping, which covers the planning, creation and maintenance of designed landscapes, both urban and rural. A designed landscape is any piece of ground that has been changed to make it fit for purpose, rather than left in its wild state.

Average Duration: The apprenticeship runs for 24 months
