A horticulture career pathway through a Parks and Gardens Traineeship is for those that really want to work outdoors, gardening every day. It's about team work to deliver high quality garden maintenance on a large scale and will require you to work unsupervised on often repetitive tasks.

Your on-the-job training will see you working with a crew of experienced gardeners, maintaining large private, public and commercial 'green spaces'. Some days you might do nothing but pruning and hedge trimming, and other days you will mulch and maintain soil while planting hundreds of seedlings and re-potting maturing plants.

A parks and gardens traineeship typically takes three years to complete. MIGAS will facilitate your practical work placement with one of our quality host employers. In addition to on-the-job training, we will assist you with enrolment through a Registered Training Organisation to complete your certification. With MIGAS you will be fully supported throughout the duration of your placement by a Field Officer and by the wider MIGAS Apprentices and Trainees community.
