This course provides the key skill set for Social and Therapeutic Horticulture (STH) Practice and will consider the fundamental approaches and role of the practitioner within different settings and working with different groups of people.
You will not only explore the underlying principles of STH but take a deeper dive into how to develop a programme of STH using an outcome centred approach. You will also look at how to develop sessions by understanding the different factors that influence practice choices and by deepening our understanding of horticulture activities.
We will provide you with engaging learning material for you to work through in your own time combined with live events where learners can interact with each other and course tutors.
This course has been created using Thrive's many years of experience and provides learners with the opportunities to gain from our expertise and share practice with others across the field.

This course is intended for those who have either completed the Introduction to STH Practice, or who have a basic knowledge of STH already either through volunteering or working within STH.
