Our Horticultural & Landscaping Apprentice Connor Steenson

Connor has successfully completed SVQ in  Landscaping Level  5.  He has also completed level 2 modern apprenticeship in horticultural & Landscaping through GOSTA 2 year apprentice scheme.

Connor has been employed with PDC for just over 2 years.  Before being employed with PDC, Connor was not familiar with landscaping and had never used garden machinery. Through his apprenticeship Connor shadowed the PDC Landscaping supervisor Mihail Prisolpan and the team, learning how to use lawnmowers, strimmers and hedge cutters as well as all aspects of planting.

PDC Interim Manager Chris Rough stated “over the past 2 years Connor has matured and I have seen as huge improvement in his commitment to PDC and his work , he is a valued member of the team and would like to congratulate Connor on his achievement ”.

Connor is now hoping to complete SVQ level 3 in Production Horticultural. We wish him the very best of luck in his next chapter.

Connor happy at work!
