With the support of many of the world’s leading garden designers we are often able to introduce students to design positions. Whilst it is difficult to place every student on work experience we do aim to give students opportunities to be involved on events such as RHS shows. It is usual that we are able to access the Chelsea Flower Show before it opens and we also run a unique collaboration with the RHS to enable students and graduates to design planting for event spaces at this show.
We also get a large number of requests for garden design staff from the garden design profession and landscape industry that we aim to pass onto our students and graduates. Graduates have previously secured careers with leading designers such as Jo Thompson, Luciano Giubbilei, Andy Sturgeon and Sam Martin.
The London College of Garden Design is renowned for equipping students with all the tools required to launch a successful garden design career. We are committed to supporting our graduates through their careers and many come back time and again to update their skills on our free graduate training days. Our reputation in design also means that we are often able to offer opportunities exclusively to our graduates. Recently these have included opportunities to design gardens for the Chelsea Flower Show and other shows, and for permanent landscapes a park on the South Bank in central London.
If you have an interest in garden design and gardens but not as a career we have developed a series of events and courses that will give you an insider’s knowledge of the profession and enable you to expand your own garden design skills.
