Work Experience

We offer work experience for Year 11 and post 16 year olds (places are limited).​


Currently we are unable to offer any work experience placements without support 

The placement is suitable for anyone over 15 years of age, who wants to work outdoors, be part of a team, learn about horticulture and work within the local community. 


The  experience will include:

Health and Safety Induction and wearing and use of personal protective equipment

Working as part of a team

Working outdoors in all seasons

Horticulture Projects and general maintenance

Working with our staff on our School Projects

Working with staff on our Intergenerational Projects

Feedback to the young person during their stay with us

They will need to purchase their own steel toe capped boots (their school/college/post 16 educational provider may help with the cost of this) and come suitable dressed in appropriate all weather clothing that will not matter if it gets dirty.

The school/post 16 educational provider/student/parent/guardian will need to complete the consent form in the drop down box, contact us to make an appointment for an interview at a mutually agreeable time and to attend said interview. The placement will be dependent on the interview outcome due to the high volume of requests.
