Hi, I’m Minca. I’m 20 years old from South London. I found Streetscape online when I was looking for a plant course as I want to open my own florist shop one day. Streetscape have really grounded my desire to want to work in this industry. The team is great and we always have a laugh as well as work hard (obviously!). They have helped me learn many new skills, that I probably wouldn’t have known about otherwise.
David North – Past Streetscape Apprentice
When I found out about Streetscape I was taken aback with the sheer volume of opportunities they were offering. I immediately knew that this was well worth pursuing as they outlined all the criteria I wanted with an apprenticeship and more.
Since being accepted onto the Streetscape team I have found myself in a much more stable place in both my life and mind. In addition I can now learn a trade that I am very interested in and work towards a career. I have been here for almost two months so far and find myself learning new things every day, from Latin names of plants to woodwork. It is fantastic, thank you Streetscape!
Janek Mniszko – Streetscape Graduate
My name is Janek and I joined Streetscape in December 2015. The apprenticeship has given me an opportunity to learn a big variety of skills in building gardens, and I have gained a lot of knowledge of plants and horticulture. Thanks to what Streetscape offer, I now have a driving license and am looking at further training which they are funding. This will help me develop my future career in landscaping.
Daniel Clifton – Streetscape Graduate 2015-16
Hi, my name is Daniel, and I started my apprenticeship with Streetscape in February 2015. Before Streetscape I was working for a private landscaping company as a labourer. I was doing this for 3 years and had learnt a lot but had no qualifications or any real skill set. I took the apprenticeship at Streetscape because I believe I can get the skills I need to push myself forward in my career. I’m most looking forward to learning about plants as I have no knowledge of their Latin names, nor have much soft landscaping experience. I’m most interested in hard landscaping but want to be an all rounded landscape gardener with skills both in hard and soft.

Simeon Dunford – Streetscape Graduate 2014-2015
Hi I’m Simeon. I’ve been an apprentice at Streetscape for 4 months, nearly 5, and I am really enjoying it insofar. I have been able to bolster my skills by the training provided. Before coming to Streetscape, I was involved with Hampton Court where the garden I was working on was awarded a Silver-gilt medal.
Hello, my name is Cheyenne, and I started my Streetscape apprenticeship in February 2014. I’ve always known that I wanted to do something hands on, practical and artistic. Before I came to Streetscape, I completed a short horticulture course which got me into thinking about garden design. This is the same short course that got me in touch with Streetscape, and put me on one of their recruitment days to apply for their apprenticeship… the rest, as they say, is history! Working with Streetscape is amazing. Each and every member of the team is very friendly and down to earth; the atmosphere is comfortable and great to work in. I enjoy and cherish every moment working with Streetscape as I have learnt a lot, and will continue to do so.
Thomas Lowe, Streetscape Graduate 2014-15
Hi I’m Tom. I started my apprenticeship in November 2013, and graduated in November 2014. I found Streetscape to be an awesome place to work. Before I started I had been unemployed for quite a while, I was on a horticultural course but was unsure if it would lead to anything real. Thankfully it led me to a recruitment day with Streetscape, and straight away I knew I wanted to work for the company. At Streetscape, I had learnt lots of new skills and made good friends. I’m on my way to becoming a landscaper and I have Streetscape to thank.
Hi, I’m Eli. I started my Streetscape apprenticeship in September 2013. Before Streetscape, I studied Arboriculture and Forestry at Capel Manor. I was then unemployed for quite a while, and came across Streetscape whilst doing the Spear course. I jumped at the opportunity as I have always enjoyed gardening as a hobby and it made sense to turn it into a full time career. In my spare time I like nothing better than to grow fruit and vegetables at my allotment, playing rugby and keeping fit.
“I am very pleased that Streetscape are using our facilities and gardens for training purposes. Streetscape have developed a great programme that helps local young people to get out of worklessness and we are proud to be part of it. We believe that Streetscape will spread the interest in horticulture amongst the young local community.”
