RHS New Shoots
Starting in 2023, the RHS New Shoots initiative sets out to support more people into a career in horticulture. Whether you are still in formal education or a career changer, New Shoots is here to promote horticultural careers and to signpost opportunities to gain work experience and formal qualifications within the RHS Gardens.
At RHS Wisley, we currently offer work experience for school students, placements within the Curatorial team to gain practical experience working in a public garden, apprenticeships and Level 3 and 4 diploma programmes. Our Master of Horticulture is taught remotely.
As part of the new Wisley Training Hub development, which will see the construction of a sustainable horticultural training garden over 2023, there will be further opportunities to volunteer.
We are committed to increasing the diversity of learners within the RHS, so if you have any concerns about access to our engagement and training programmes please get in touch with the New Shoots team at email@example.com
“The Qualifications team at the RHS will happily help anyone seeking advice about RHS courses/qualifications and the best starting point for them. Anyone seeking advice can email firstname.lastname@example.org. We aim to respond within 3 working days but usually responses are the same or following day.
If you are located close to RHS Wisley then there are a number of short courses (informal) which are run in the garden all year. If the shorter courses would be of interest then the Learning Team will be able to help and advise on the most appropriate course (email@example.com).”
