Bicton College and Duchy College have supported the fast-paced sector by delivering the new Level 2 Equine Groom standard apprenticeship that has been designed by employers for employers.

“The equine groom is a fundamental occupational role in all equine businesses, and vital to an industry that contributes over £8bn to the British economy each year,” the Institute for Apprenticeships stated.

Whether it’s the iconic holes of the Masters at Augusta, or the rugged splendor of Gleneagles, pristine golf courses are something to behold.

But it takes a great deal of knowledge and passion to maintain these masterpieces, and with this in mind, a college in Cornwall has launched a new Golf Greenkeeping apprenticeship.

Duchy College at Stoke Climsland near Callington has worked in conjunction with employers to develop the apprenticeship, ensuring it meets business needs.
