Dan Brennen

Set to flourish in landscape gardening

Former Horticulture learner Dan Brennen flew the flag for Broomfield Hall by scooping a gold medal in the WorldSkills UK final – after building a garden in just 18 hours.

Dan, now studying Landscape Architecture at the University of Sheffield, impressed industry experts who judged his efforts at the Skills Show held at the NEC.

There to represent Derby College, he was part of a team which built a garden from scratch, including laying block paving and slabs, building raised beds, installing a water feature and planting.

Dan’s success gave him the chance to work with a specialist training team to prepare for a further WorldSkills challenge in Northern Ireland – so he gained even more skills to take forward into his working life.

Being part of WorldSkills was a fantastic experience and I’ve learnt so much. The additional training I’ve done as part of the competition will earn me a Level 4 qualification which, along with my degree, will hopefully greatly improve my job prospects after university.
