The programme takes on 10 16-18-year-olds each year and trains them through a combination of practical work in the parks and academic training at Capel Manor College in Regent's Park.
The course comprises a wide range of horticultural subjects and qualifies successful applicants with an RHS level two certificate in horticulture and a diploma in work-based horticulture.
Park programme manager Andrew Williams said it was a fantastic opportunity for young people, particularly in today's climate. "Apprenticeship schemes are very important to give young people the tools they need to develop their careers. It provides a range of vocational skills and it gives young people a chance to earn while they learn," he said.
"More people are aware of the quality of our programme and they will continue to increase in popularity. The components are written and accredited by the industry so they provide first-class qualifications for young people committed to getting their horticulture careers off the ground."
