The Higher National Certificate in Horticulture is a challenging course which has been designed to provide students with both the knowledge and technical skills to enter the industry at a managerial level. Horticulture is a vibrant and exciting industry with excellent opportunities in a range of careers such as plant science, garden design and crop production. There is a recognised skills gap for people with higher level qualifications in this subject. Our Brinsbury campus is placed in the heart of West Sussex which is the country’s leading area for glasshouse and production horticulture. At the end of the course students have the opportunity to celebrate their achievement with a full graduation ceremony at Chichester Cathedral.
This will provide the opportunity to progress into managerial positions in Production Horticulture, maintaining and restoring historic parks and gardens, advisory positions in the field of pest and disease management or progressing onto year two, Level 5 HND.
