Trainee Placements

Within the training programmes, there are two alternative routes, known as streams. Stream 1 is delivered over one year and Stream 2 over two years. Both streams provide the benefit of a full time salaried placement in a historic or botanic garden. Applicants for both streams must be at least 18 years of age at the start of the placement
