AWARD Access Course

Thrive's Undergraduate Award in Social and Therapeutic Horticulture is accredited by Coventry University and endorsed by the College of Occupational Therapists. Alongside the Professional Development Diploma in STH, Thrive's Award in STH is one of the most widely recognised and credible qualifications available in this field of work.

The Award combines two days of teaching with an eight-week period of self-directed study during which students will produce a written description of a year-round horticultural programme for a specific client group.

Access to the Award is normally via one of the client-specific courses on our specialist knowledge programme.

However, for Occupational Therapists or any Health and Social Care Professionals who are likely to be supporting diverse client groups, Thrive offer a dedicated two-day course that provides direct access to the Award. Unlike the client-specific courses on our specialist knowledge programme, this access course explores the use of therapeutic horticulture with clients with a wide range of support needs in settings that will be familiar to occupational therapists.

This route to the Award is suitable for occupational therapists or other professionals who use, or who intend on using, gardening as part of a formal therapeutic programme.
