No commitment necessary! Everyone (16-24 years old) is welcome, regardless of horticulture experience.
Our traineeship comprises a three-month placement with Cultivate London, and a 1-month work placement at another enterprise. While at Cultivate London, trainees learn a wide range of basic horticulture skills, have the opportunity to achieve a level one qualification in practical horticulture, maths and literacy, and be involved in many aspects of the running of our award-winning social enterprise, from seed sowing to harvest and sales.
Following the three months with Cultivate London, trainees are then be placed with a suitable business, where they will complete a one-month work placement. Examples of businesses with whom we are collaborating to provide work experience are Amey (who hold a contract with the Royal Parks), Walpole Gardens, Chiswick House Gardens and Octink, among others.
