Nick Nicholson

Nick Nicholson

BA (Hons), PGCE

Programme Area Leader for Higher Education [Otley]

Nick has run his own garden design and landscaping business since 1999, moving from London to Suffolk in 2007. Since becoming Course Leader of Landscape & Garden Design at Easton & Otley College, and achieving a PGCE, he has necessarily scaled this down to fit in with teaching. Nick learned hard and soft landscaping skills working for London-based landscaping companies and underpinned this practical experience by achieving Distinctions in the RHS General examination and a Garden Design Diploma from the English Gardening School at Chelsea. His hands-on approach to running a landscaping business has ensured he is experienced in most aspects of the industry which beneficially informs his teaching. Nick’s experience in earlier careers as a Chartered Surveyor and a spell in the music business, together with his increasing involvement in art and painting, reflect his varied interests and contributes towards a broad-minded and rounded approach to life and learning.
