Newman landscapes values all new talent and nurture young people in this industry.
An apprenticeship is a real job with training. You can earn while you learn, usually in college for one day a week or on block release from your employer. You will get a recognized qualification while being paid a wage by your employer.
What’s more, you can do an apprenticeship in horticulture and arboriculture – making it a great option if you want to learn valuable skills and gain knowledge that employers want you to have, all while gaining a solid foundation of real full-time work experience.
