Each year, Shuttleworth College ‘home-grows’ more than 20 apprentices who go on to become landscapers, home gardeners, council and corporate maintenance staff.

The pick of the crop is Horticultural Landscape Operative apprentice Immy Moore, aged 19, of Milton Keynes who works on the beautiful Shuttleworth Estate. Another student works at Luton Hoo and more for a range of contractors.

Tom Bowen, Shuttleworth College Apprenticeship Training co-ordinator, is looking forward to welcoming new recruits from September, including those on the new Countryside course alongside Horticulture.
