This course has a strong practical focus supported by key theoretical aspects. It is ideal for gaining a craft level qualification if you have a strong interest in trees and woodlands.
Regular industry seminars and professional speakers inspire and enthuse students to forge careers within the industry, and training towards the NPTC Certificates of Competence in chainsaw and related operations is embedded within the course.
Topics may include:
You will be assessed by a range of methods including multiple choice exams, practical assessments, written assignments, presentations and projects.
On successful completion of the Level 2 qualification, you may be able to progress on to a Level 3 Foundation Technical Diploma in Forestry & Arboriculture. Alternatively, you could find full-time employment with arboriculture contracting companies, local authorities, private parks and gardens, the Forestry Commission or National Trust. Opportunities also exist to undertake tree work across the globe.
|Course Title||Forestry and Arboriculture Technical Diploma Level 2|
You need five GCSEs in the 9 to 2 range including English and Maths or a Level 1 qualification. Course entry is subject to an initial assessment in English and Maths to determine the appropriate level of study, and a successful interview is required.
My knowledge of trees has deepened as I have progressed from the Level 2 course to Level 3, and all of the skills and knowledge I’ve gained will help in my career in arboriculture after college. I have had the opportunity to gain my NPTC chainsaw qualifications and to do work experience with Connor Down Tree Services, where I enjoyed doing both grounds work and climbing work.
