Case Study - New nursery leaders nurtured in funded study programs

Three professional development programs for nursery employees are meeting the industry’s goal of nurturing future innovators and young leaders, with the first students of the inaugural Global Masterclass in Horticultural Business set to graduate by the end of the year.

Three students selected from within the nursery industry have described the Masterclass offered through the University of Tasmania (UTAS) as ‘unique’, ‘inspiring’ and ‘contributing to the awareness of horticulture’s importance’.

The nursery industry will once again allocate $30,000 worth of scholarship funding towards the Masterclass in 2018. Those that have a strong interest in, and passion for, building their skills and the industry’s capacity are encouraged to apply before 12 November 2017.
