Hadlow College Awarded GTC Quality Mark
Hadlow College has recently gained the prestigious GTC Quality Mark in recognition of the high standard of greenkeeping training that is offered within the Apprenticeships, Business and Communities (ABC) department.
As an independent organisation representing British golf club employers and greenkeepers, the Greenkeepers Training Committee (GTC) works closely with the Lantra Sector Skills Council and Awarding Bodies, City & Guilds and the Scottish Qualifications Authority (SQA) to monitor and maintain an approved list of training providers. This work includes ensuring employers and learners receive the best possible service from approved providers.
Acknowledging the dedication of the greenkeeping team at the College, all of whom have excellent experience, knowledge and connections within the golf greenkeeping sector, David Golding – the Education Director for GTC – stated that “the greenkeeping apprenticeship scheme have proved very successful for golf club employers and apprentices with the team at Hadlow committed to delivering education across all levels, including deputies, head greenkeepers and course managers."
Anthony Stockwell, Sports Turf Assessor at Hadlow College, added “We are delighted to have re-affirmed our relationship with the GTC. This is part of Hadlow’s on-going vision for quality delivery of education and commitment to the greenkeeping industry."
Hadlow College currently offers a range of Level 2 and Level 3 work-based qualifications in greenkeeping and sports turf. More information is available within the work-focused training section of the website.
