About Capel Manor:

Capel Manor College is London’s leading land-based college and is delighted to be supporting the next generation of apprentices to be employed by John O’Conner.  Together we look forward to the delivery of the new horticulture apprenticeship standards which we see as an improvement on the frameworks they replace.  These new qualifications promise to provide young entrants into the industry with all of the knowledge and skills they need to become first-rate horticulturalists.   “As a college we know this aspiration can only be realised by working in partnership with first class employers that are as equally committed as us to the future well-being of the Industry.  John O’Conner is just such an employer.”


John O’Conner’s 2017 award winning Apprenticeship Programme is now live. Applicants should check the John O’Conner website for further information and details on how to apply.
