Capel Manor College wins key horticulture apprenticeship contract

Capel Manor College is set to deliver high quality education and training for the prestigious Royal Parks Horticultural Apprenticeship Programme in a new 3 year training programme specifically designed to support horticultural Apprentices.

“Our Royal Parks are vital components of London’s green infrastructure and they significantly contribute to making London one of the world’s finest capital cities and are loved by tourists and Londoner’s alike. The Royal Parks’ Apprentices play an important part in helping maintain and develop the Royal Parks and Capel is delighted to be working with The Royal Parks to continue and enhance their success” said Malcolm Goodwin, Capel’s Principal. “We do not underestimate the importance of this relationship and know it extends our credentials and expertise for supporting green space, parks and zoos across the whole of Greater London.”

Apprentices participating in this Royal Parks Apprenticeship Scheme receive first-hand training at one of the eight Royal Parks in central and Greater London. They will also study for qualifications in the horticultural industry at the College one-day a week receiving tuition and support from their highly knowledgeable and experienced teaching team and attend specialist master classes with experts from The Royal Parks and the Royal Parks Guild.

Dennis Clarke, Head of Park Services, The Royal Parks, said: “We’re pleased to partner with Capel to train our new apprentices – and potentially the park managers of the future. There are an estimated 77 million annual visits to the parks, so it’s vital we train the best new talent to the highest standards to deliver world class horticulture and to continue to provide unparalleled opportunities for enjoyment, exploration and healthy living in the heart of London.”
