A grant of £20,000 has been given to Trees for Cities' Growing Skills in Lambeth project. This is a pilot apprenticeship programme as part of its existing horticulture training programme. It will recruit two low-income Lambeth resident NEET young people as Horticulture apprentices, providing paid employment and on the job training. An additional two NEET young people will take part in a six month traineeship programme, receiving accredited horticulture training alongside practical work experience and job search support. Training will be based at TfC’s operational base in Ruskin Park, Denmark Hill. Apprentices and trainees will also undertake placements on projects across London, targeting areas of deprivation where greening projects have significant impact.
