If you have a keen interest in learning about all aspects of managing sports pitches including the use of machinery then look no further!

The University of Warwick consists of three adjacent sites including Central campus, Gibbet Hill campus and Westwood campus. The Grounds Team manage a broad range of facilities which include football, rugby, hockey, tennis and basketball to name a few. This includes the highest standard grass and astro pitches the industry can offer.

During the apprenticeship, you will be working in an award winning landscape. Our high standards have been proven through hosting the 2022 Commonwealth games athletes, UEFA and Coventry United football club. We have also been awarded the IOG Best Managed Artificial Surface of the Year, 2019. You will work alongside the team, helping them to maintain and develope the grounds and gardens of the University campus.

We offer a comprehensive training scheme where you will have mentors to support you along the way and if you put in the hard work, we will help you achieve your apprenticeship with flying colours.

We offer a two year apprenticeship with Myerscough College. The training will be a mixture of online sessions with regular visits from the Tutor to the University. Any required travel to Myerscough College will be covered by the University of Warwick.
