New John O’Conner apprenticeship partnership launched

Top 100 Apprenticeship Employer, John O’Conner (Grounds Maintenance) Ltd, has established a new and exciting training partnership with Capel Manor College for their 2017 Apprenticeship Programme offering up to 10 Amenity Horticulture Apprentice opportunities in the Hertfordshire, Bedfordshire and Buckinghamshire areas. Successful applicants will be invited to join our Apprentice Open Day in July and will undertake a work experience week with us in August with a view to joining our team in early September 2017.

About Capel Manor: Capel Manor College is London’s leading land-based college and is delighted to be supporting the next generation of apprentices to be employed by John O’Conner. Together we look forward to the delivery of the new horticulture apprenticeship standards which we see as an improvement on the frameworks they replace. These new qualifications promise to provide young entrants into the industry with all of the knowledge and skills they need to become first-rate horticulturalists.

“As a college we know this aspiration can only be realised by working in partnership with first class employers that are as equally committed as us to the future well-being of the Industry. John O’Conner is just such an employer.”

John O’Conner’s 2017 award winning Apprenticeship Programme is now live. Applicants should check the John O’Conner website for further information and details on how to apply.

John O’Conner was the Regional Winner of the East of England National Apprenticeship Large Employer of the Year and a National finalist in the same category for the UK earning the prestigious Highly Commended Award.
