Principal's Welcome

Thank you for taking an interest in our College. We are very proud of the work that we do to help our students reach their desired destination and achieve their goals.

We have a professional team of tutors and course leaders, all experts in their specialist fields. We work with hundreds of employers across London, providing direct access to real-world industry know-how, experiences and placements, including prestigious, world-class partners such as The Royal Parks, Buckingham Palace, The Dorchester Hotel, Royal Botanic Gardens Kew, British Association Landscape Industries (BALI), and The Zoological Society of London (ZSL), to name a few.

With courses for school leavers and career changers, our students progress into work or further study. Many set up their own businesses, supported by our experts along the way.

Our mission is to equip our students to take advantage of the huge opportunities that exist across the London economy, with employers increasingly needing the green skills that our students acquire. This demand is forecast to grow in the years ahead, as the move towards increased environmental awareness, the importance of green skills and sustainability, and the expansion of green spaces around the region all gather momentum.

Providing learning pathways at all levels, from entry through to higher education, including part-time, apprenticeship and work-based options, we are sure we have something that could help you realise your full potential and open the door to a world of opportunity.

We also think you will have a rewarding and fulfilling experience along the way, studying in our unique, tranquil campuses – including over 200 acres of gardens and woodland, two zoos, a farm and thousands of animals - with all the options for supportive, enriched experiences they offer.

Get in touch - we look forward to welcoming you and helping you to define your learning journey.
