Why choose BMC?
The Foundation Level courses at our Brooksby Campus focus on land-based studies. These cover agriculture, small animal care, horticulture, estate skills and equine studies alongside employability and functional skills qualifications.
Courses have a practical focus, with much of the time spent outdoors on the College’s 850 acre Brooksby estate, which features a farm, acres of formal gardens, and Animal Care and Equine centres.
These courses offer a fantastic level of support, giving you everything you need both in and out of classes. Our staff will be there to help you progress to the next stage and gain more confidence and independence.
