Training and Careers

Growing knowledge, skills and education can change lives and we’re here to help by providing the tools needed to move ahead in your career, increase the chances of success and create a better future.

Our Career Hub, SnapDragon is one of those tools – packed full of interactive resources designed to help you to make the right decisions, accelerate your job search and maximise your career opportunities.

Because thinking about where you want to be now and in the long term, understanding your current skills and the areas you need to improve on, as well as knowing what types of job opportunities are on offer, is a vital part of planning the best career for you.

Learning is very rewarding, and qualifications can add prestige to your skills and what you have to offer – whatever area of the horticultural industry you work in, there will be a variety of training and learning experiences to suit your aspirations. Employers, colleagues and customers will recognise the dedication put into learning your trade and the results will speak for themselves. Take a look at the Horticultural Training and Qualifications page for more information.

We believe understanding where you want to be in your career, recognising your achievements, improving your skills and enhancing learning can benefit you and the industry as a whole by producing knowledgeable, skilled and happy people working throughout horticulture.
