Land-Based Studies

BTEC Level 1/2 Land Based Studies

Land-based studies is a specialist BTEC qualification that gives learners knowledge, understanding and skills they need to prepare for employment in a specific occupational area. Pearson BTEC Entry Level 3 and Level 1 qualifications in Land-based Studies have been developed to give learners the opportunity to:

  • Engage in learning which is relevant to them and will provide opportunities to develop a range of skills and techniques, personal skills and attributes essential for successful performance in working life.
  • Achieve a nationally recognised Entry or Level 1 vocationally-related qualification.
  • Progress to employment in the land-based sector
  • Progress to related vocational qualifications: Level 1/2, Diplomas and apprenticeships.

Within the syllabus we will be covering different areas within horticulture such as; understanding soils, ground preparation, planting bulbs and naturalisation. We will also look into working towards goals, shopping and waste management.
