Mitchell, Level 2 Diploma in Horticulture

Mitchell  - Level 2 Diploma, Moreton Morrell College

 

I have been an apprentice at 4th Corner Landscaping for the past 6 months and am currently studying for a Level 2 Diploma in Horticulture at Moreton Morrell College. My course so far has provided me with a wealth of information, including: 

  • Plant/tree identification
  • Soil pH testing
  • Bugs and pest identification
  • Health and safety within the workplace
  • Machine use and maintenance

​When I first starting work at 4th Corner I soon realised that I was working for a well organised, efficient and friendly family company.  When working as a team member I find that all the operatives do their upmost to help each other and make sure that the job is done correctly and well.  In the future, I hope to gain more knowledge within this field of work, enhancing my skills in the process.

I started working at 4th Corner in August 2012. I was very keen from a young age to work outdoors

and gardening and grounds maintenance allows me to do this (even though it does get a bit cold at times but that doesn’t bother me!).

 

I am a student at Morton Morell College and completed Level 2 Diploma in Horticulture in September 2015. Since then I have been studying Level 3.   My Diploma topics include:

  • Tree names
  • Plant names
  • Machinery used in horticulture
  • Machine maintenance
  • Health and safety
  • Tractor driving

 

I was very lucky to find an apprenticeship in this sector as I wanted to work outside with plants and gain qualifications and knowledge at the same time. After a month at 4th Corner I realised that the company was very caring to its staff and had a very positive relationship with clients. The thing I like most about working at 4th Corner is the communication between the staff and the team work that takes place to get the work done.

 

Working with the team at 4th Corner is really helping me to grow my knowledge and at the same time I am proud to be part of a successful business. Since 2015 I have been given my own development to manage, and I am now in charge of the gardens and grounds maintenance at Clarks Court, Banbury.
