T&G Global partnership with Lincoln University

Description

This partnership between T&G Global and Lincoln University allows students currently enrolled in the Level 5 Diploma of Horticulture to learn while they earn, gaining practical work experience while they complete their study. The programme is carried out over two years with students able to earn a full time wage, working five days per week during peak season, while in the remainder of the year working four days weekly, including one paid study day. Students are able to complete their study and training via a combination of online and face to face work remotely with the university, as well as in person with T&G trainers.
