Landscaping and sports turf

Demand is growing for beautifully landscaped outdoor areas for business and leisure, creating more jobs for dedicated and talented landscapers.

Landscaping is physical, hard work, but it's also rewarding and creative. We will teach you the practical skills you'll need to make it in the industry, including building with hard materials and working with plants and turf.

There are fantastic opportunities both in the UK and overseas for people who are trained and qualified in sports turf...so if you are passionate about sport and would love to work outdoors then this is the industry for you!

Most sports are played on grass or turf surfaces, including football, rugby, golf, cricket, horse racing and tennis. There's a vast number of national and international, private and commercially owned pitches, courses, grounds and courts, all of which need to be perfectly maintained, making this an excellent employment prospect for dedicated and talented sports turf professionals.

Our sports turf courses will equip you with the skills necessary to build, maintain and manage quality turf surfaces, offering you fantastic opportunities both in the UK and overseas. You will have access to specialist sports turf machinery and develop close links with employers in the industry. Our teaching staff also have excellent knowledge of the industry and are dedicated experts in their field.
