Former BTC horticulture student lands new role at Whatley Manor - Bridgwater & Taunton College

Former Level 3 horticulture student, India Moule, has recently secured a new position as Assistant Gardener at Whatley Manor, near Bristol.

India completed the BTEC Diploma in Horticulture in 2018 and since then has worked in several high-profile horticultural gardens including Hestercombe Gardens in Taunton, Kilver Court Gardens in Shepton Mallet as well as Sharpham Park which is owned by the Mulberry fashion brand founder, Roger Saul.

India said,

The Horticulture industry offers some amazing opportunities and every day is both different and exciting. I really enjoy working with plants and working outdoors with nature. It is great to be able to put all of the skills and knowledge I learnt at College into practice within my career.

Whilst studying the two year horticulture diploma India undertook units such as plant & soil science, landscape and garden design, plant propagation and pruning. India also benefitted from the British Association of Landscape Industries (BALI) student bursary fund, which allowed her to gain additional qualifications.

Tom Cunningham, Curriculum Manager for Agriculture, Food and Land Management said,

Myself and the teaching team are incredibly proud of India’s continuing achievements. She was a fantastic student, both practically and academically and it is great to see that she is utilising her skills, knowledge and experience to secure new opportunities within the horticultural industry. The industry is constant moving forward with developments with science, technology and sustainability, which make it an exciting career choice for many.
