The College of Amenity Horticulture trains students for employment in the amenity horticulture industry. Traininging is provided in association with OPW, Dublin Municipal Parks departments and a large selection of Horticultural Businesses.

Currently the college is providing training for 300 students between all  courses. There is a balance of both school leavers and mature participants among the students.

While on courses students are trained in the theory and practice of horticulture and get an opportunity to work in a practical way alongside skilled horticulturalists as part of their training.

Graduates contribute in many sectors of the horticulture industry, such as, landscape design and construction, garden centres, parks, estate gardens, grounds maintenance and greenkeeping.

All aspects of Horticulture are being studied on programmes from Level 5 to Level 7 and prospective students should contact the college directly or attend a careers and course day to find out more information.
