Shoot added to Cotswold Gardening School curriculum

29th August 2017. The Cotswold Gardening School will be including Shoot for Professionals as part of the school’s standard curriculum for all students starting courses this year.

Nicola Gammon, CEO, Shoot with Caroline Tatham, Principal, The Cotswold Gardening School with last year’s graduating class.

This will include the students taking the Garden Design (one-year, ten-week, and one-year concise which is new this year) and the Planting Design courses.

Watch the video below to hear what the Principal Caroline Tatham says about Shoot and why she has decided to include Shoot as part of the courses her school runs.

The students will use the Shoot Professional package in the following ways:

  • to compile their plant portfolios. A close study of 50 plants for the 1-year garden design course and 25 plants for the ten-week planting course. This involves all the technical info and images but also importantly design uses.
  • research for planting plans – this applies to all courses.
  • source for mood boards – all courses.
  • source for sketchbook research – all courses.

Nicola Gammon, CEO Shoot, is delighted that Shoot will be included as a standard part of the Cotswold Gardening School curriculum.

“We are often told by recent graduates they only wished they knew about Shoot at the start of their studies… as Shoot is not only a tool to help new designers to become more profitable, but it is also a great educational aid. I am thrilled the The Cotswold Gardening School will be including Shoot as part of the curriculum going forward and hope other horticultural and design colleges also decide to include Shoot as part of their courses too.”
