Formerly known as an NVQ, and taking place in the workplace at a suitable time arranged with your assessor, this course builds on the competencies gained at Level 2 with students benefiting from a blend of theory and practical assessments all aimed at maximising their potential. Designed to provide craft-level skills to students already in the amenity horticulture sector, you will study the principles of landscape evaluation and design, hard landscape construction and basic management of materials and labour.
