A traineeship in retail nursery provides you with the foundation knowledge required to provide expert advice to customers regarding their gardening needs. You will also learn how best to care for and grow a variety of plant species.
Your on-the-job training will see you working in a Garden Centre or Nursery learning from experienced retail nursery horticulturalists. You will also have opportunities to gain additional qualifications and licences for things such as pesticide management.
A retail nursery traineeship is typically 3 years, depending on your practical work and commitment to off-the-job studies. 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.
