We also seek to offer progression routes via work placements, volunteering opportunities, further training and qualifications or supervised work with our grounds maintenance delivery team working off site maintaining the grounds of local schools, churches and residential homes. 

Our nursery at Seears Park in Sutton is being developed into a hub for the community to include gated gardens, a café and gift shop and enable the full range of horticultural skills to be practiced or appreciated.Yourspacesutton also deliver workshops for schools in partnership with Sutton EBP targeting their ‘Every child’s journey into work matters’ objectives. We actively seek to engage the wider community and the site and nursery therefore has to be maintained appropriately to help facilitate the delivery of these programs as a vehicle to our long term aims and regeneration of the site. The workshops can be curriculum enriching or can lead to both non accredited and accredited certification with OCN, Skills for Working Life or Award in Amenity Horticulture qualifications at Level 1 or Entry Level 2/3 as appropriate to each learner. Workshops can complement a range of subject areas, on-going programmes of study or offer alternative provision and enrichment opportunities. Activities can be tailored to suit learners from mainstream secondary, special schools and further education colleges. Learners must come supported by the appropriate staff and individual support needs.

All Workshops are led by enthusiastic, qualified and experienced horticulturists covering a full range of horticultural skills. Workshops are motivating and bring learning to life with all tasks implementing safe and effective practices in the workplace. Learners participate in structured workshops targeting specific outcomes and promote the effective development of transferable work-based skills. Facilities at Seears Park Nursery include; indoor and outdoor classrooms, poly and shade tunnels, a pond, raised beds, allotments and walk through gardens, toilets and disabled access.
