Mount Stuart launches Horticulture Apprentice Scheme

mount stuart

Mount Stuart, in partnership with University of Highlands and Islands – Argyll College apprenticeship scheme, is now open for applications for the 2017 Horticulture Apprentice programme. The two-year course, combining practical experience in one of Scotland’s finest gardens and college-based learning, is primarily aimed at ages 16-20 and is the ideal way to begin a career in horticulture.

As apprentice gardeners, the successful applicants will be paid a salary to gain hands-on experience and earn recognised qualifications. The apprentices will be based at Mount Stuart, and the ‘off the job’ training will be located at Argyll College, Rothesay Campus, which is swiftly developing into a centre of excellence for Horticulture, providing a top quality standard of education. The deadline for applications is 26 October 2017.

Don Murray, head of horticulture for Mount Stuart said: “The Mount Stuart Apprenticeship Programme offers young people a fantastic opportunity to begin a career in horticulture. Combining practical training in one of Scotland’s finest gardens with class-based learning, it’s an excellent foundation for either a hands-on role or to progress to a management or supervisory position. Apply for the scheme, and you could soon find yourself tending to some of the world’s rarest plants.”

Deadline for applications is 26 October 2017.
