If you work with children and young people with Special Education Needs and Disabilities (SEND) and can see the potential of gardening to raise their confidence, self-esteem and achievement, then this course is for you.
We will give you the practical horticultural skills you need to work safely and confidently with young people, so that they can be fully involved in gardening activities with an appropriate level of challenge.
- Select the right seeds, plants and tools for your young people and their needs
- Teach your young people a range of horticultural skills whilst continuing to assess their progress
- Link gardening to childrens’ personal development plans and see how it supports positive changes to behaviour
- Use plants in your garden for creative activities and enterprise ideas
