Megan Yalland aged 23, from Ramsgate, Kent is about to finish her Advanced Apprenticeship in Greenkeeping
“Apprenticeships are fantastic because they have given me the opportunity to learn a trade, earn a wage and get a nationally recognised qualification all at the same time. Soon I will be able to stand amongst my industry peers as a qualified Greenkeeper with several years of true experience. As well as my level 2 and level 3 qualifications in Greenkeeping I have also done the full range of Pesticide and spraying certificates and next up is a telehandler course which I am really looking forward to. I am always happy to learn new skills. I love Greenkeeping, the variety and the fact that the job changes with the seasons and that no two days are the same. The variety is amazing and you have to problem solve all the time, and also think on your feet.”
