The governors are seeking to appoint an enthusiastic and highly motivated person to work with our current support team to develop outdoor learning. The person appointed should have knowledge of gardening / horticulture work and ideally experience of working with young people.

The post holder will work as part of a team to deliver accredited and non-accredited courses and activities for students in our Pine Cone horticulture unit. We were inspected in March 2013 and were graded as ‘outstanding’ in every category. We moved in to purpose built ‘State of the Art’ buildings in April 2013. On 1st May 2017 we joined ACET (Aston Community Education Trust) which further strengthens our capacity to improve opportunities for all our students and staff.
