It was clear from Tim’s first interview for an apprenticeship with the National Trust for Scotland that he had a passion for horticulture. Since his first day on the job he has been, hardworking, diligent and committed, acquiring new skills quickly and enthusiastically. He consistently scores highly in college assessments and workplace tests. In the college environment he has been a key member of the class encouraging and supportive to other class members.
Tim is an excellent team worker, showing great empathy with everyone he meets, whether workmates, members of the public or classmates at SRUC Oatridge Campus.
During his first year at Crathes Castle Garden Tim has impressed with his horticultural knowledge and has also enjoyed taking part in a television interview about Crathes. He has impressed one of the major donors of the NTS apprenticeship scheme and been recognised as one of their top apprentices.
