As part of Thrive’s development of different methods of delivery, we have developed two blended learning courses to support the replacement of our face to face training delivery in light of national lockdown. These courses make the most of both online and live delivery, and offer students a great opportunity to engage with remote learning with the support of peers and the tutor.
This course provides an introduction to the key skills set for Social and Therapeutic Horticulture (STH) Practice, and will consider the fundamental practice approach and role of the practitioner within different practice settings.
This is the recommended first course in our blended learning programme for those new to STH and those wanting to learn more about STH’.
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.
Drawing on our considerable experience of setting up our own projects, and assisting other organisations through our consultancy service, this blended course provides the practical knowledge, skills and insights required to start a new social and therapeutic horticultural project and to share the health benefits of therapeutic gardening directly with people who have been touched by disability.
