Horticulture and Animal Care Pathway:

Learners who follow our Horticulture and Animal Care pathway attend Hadlow College one day a week to develop practical skills and study for an accredited qualification in Land Based Studies.  This is supported by work experience placements within a suitable environment to enable students to enhance their learning and skills.

Horticulture work is seasonal therefore varied.  Learners learn how to plant and maintain hedgerows, prune trees and bushes, plant saplings and seeds, brush cutting and burning.  During summer months use of lawn mower and strimmer, re-bark worn pathways and playgrounds are taught.
