A new informal partnership will give Landstruction colleagues the opportunity to further their Horticulture qualifications with the number one training provider in North Wales, Coleg Cambria. Based on the Cheshire and Flintshire border, landscaping experts Landstruction is committed to providing a thorough Development Programme for both new and current staff, and have turned to the expertise of Coleg Cambria to provide a training package to build on their knowledge and understanding in horticulture.

Colleagues will attend the wonderful surroundings of the Northop site with its beautifully tended gardens one day a week and will then be assessed in the workplace throughout the year to gain additional horticulture qualifications.

Kate Muddiman, Work-based Learning Manager for Horticulture at Coleg Cambria said: “Completing a work-based learning course such as this gives both current and new employees the opportunity to further their knowledge and qualifications whilst still in full time work.

David T. Binks, Managing Director of Landstruction added: “Landstruction is delighted to working in partnership with Coleg Cambria; one of the largest specialist colleges in the UK. The horticultural industry is truly unique, and we hope this collaborative approach will encourage more students to enter the horticultural industry each year. As a local employer, we are proud to build strong links with Coleg Cambria and look forward to shaping the future of horticultural based learning for the benefit of all.”

Landstruction has also employed two former Coleg Cambria students following a successful open evening hosted annually at the end of the academic year; an event which will be repeated again in 2018.

The company is also offering current students the opportunity to undertake work placements and experience throughout the academic year within Landstruction, whilst also offering a number of learners the opportunity to participate in the building of an RHS Show Garden in 2018.
