There is a growing demand for built environment professionals and the proposed course will provide a much needed stepping stone which will equip learners, on completion, to have the prerequisite skills and knowledge to progress to undergraduate courses in Landscape Architecture and Horticulture.
This course will help learners develop key transferable skills such as critical thinking and creative problem solving through a focus on design as a fundamental process. In addition, this course will allow learners to explore new materials, technologies, sustainability and landscape construction.
