The Thrive Award in Social and Therapeutic Horticulture is accredited with Open College Network London and offers the opportunity to develop a full STH programme specific to a practice context.
The non-OFCAL regulated Award in Social and Therapeutic Horticulture (ASTH) is a Level 5 certificate of 15 credits (which equates to 150 hours of learning). On completion of the Award, practitioners will have gained and be able to demonstrate the skills needed to put an STH intervention in place in their chosen practice setting.
The ASTH course also counts as one of the 7 units required for the Thrive Diploma, namely Unit 6 – Rationale for Practice. This means students who successfully complete the Award can use this to count towards studying for the Diploma, reducing the learning hours and costs required for it.
The Award comprises 3 learning stages:
Course fee: £530*
*Please note this fee is in addition to the cost of attending one of the required taught courses as outlined above in Stage 1
