Students this programme will learn the introductory skills of the landscape construction trade, gaining confidence in using building tools, and how to build and make landscape elements. Students will also learn about planting, laying lawns and some maintenance.
The programme is very practical - students will get to work on real landscape projects in the community, providing them with experience in setting out, woodworking, laying concrete, and paving with drainage. They will also learn essential health and safety skills required by industry; and how to read and draw construction plans, measure, and survey.
Students will attend class four days a week (Monday-Thursday). Two or three of these days will typically be spent working outside on landscape building. Alongside class time, students will also undertake self-directed study from home.
All tools will be provided by Wintec, however students will need to provide their own safety boots and wet weather gear.
