Emma Atkinson - Horticulture Level 2  

Emma chose to study at Kirkley Hall to improve her gardening skills after starting work as a gardener at Hepburn Bell with Lilburn Estates. She began a work-based Apprenticeship which enabled her to gain hands-on experience and also study one day a week at college.

"I absolutely loved this course and my tutor has been great. I have learned a huge amount from lawn maintenance to propagation and plant identification to soil testing. The assessments are extremely useful and my knowledge has gone from strength to strength."

"I love the flexibility of the course and the gardens at Kirkley Hall are amazing. Everyone is so friendly and helpful and the other students are too. My future plans are to complete the higher level Apprenticeship and maybe go to study something else at Kirkley Hall."
