Forestry and Arboriculture Diploma Level 2 at Moulton College
This course provides a basic introduction to practical and theoretical aspects of arboriculture. You will study tree and shrub identification, ground based arboriculture operations and disposing of tree residues as well as plant and soil science and visual tree assessments.
Professional and vocational qualifications lead to accreditation, be it from an examining body, such as City & Guilds or Edexcel, or professional recognition, such as from Construction Skills or Lantra. The Qualifications and Credit Framework (QCF) recognises vocational achievement through the attainment of credits for units of study and for whole qualifications. The smallest qualification is the Award, then the Certificate, and the largest is the Diploma, although there are other intermediate qualifications also available. The duration of study will typically reflect the size of the qualification.
Four GCSE grades at D-E or above or a Level 1 Diploma in a related subject.
Vocational and professional qualifications are taught through college based theory and practical lessons with further learning and understanding developed via directed self-study. Assessment consists of internally set coursework and assignments, although some professional and vocational qualifications may require the achievement of externally set assessments.
Students generally progress onto a higher level of Arboriculture course, move into a job with training (such as an apprenticeship) or move into full time employment.
