Ricky Glenn, now aged 17 from Higham Ferrers, enrolled on the First Diploma in Horticulture programme beginning September 2006. Ricky's interest in horticulture began when helping out in his grandfathers garden, and for his secondary school work placement, Ricky worked for a landscaping company. He left school after doing his GCSEs and was accepted onto the First Diploma course. Since then Ricky has not looked back and was the youngest member of a four-person college team that competed in the nationwide Skills build competition gaining second prize in a close contest. During his time at Moulton so far, Ricky has also gained a first aid certificate and a manual handling qualification.
Ricky said I enjoy the practical side of the course and want to carry on studying so that I can eventually start up my own business.
Ricky intends to progress onto the BTEC National Diploma and then wishes to work for a landscaping company in the first instance.
