A two hour workshop which addresses how serious gardeners – professional and amateur alike – can make the most of the many opportunities to extend their skills and learning. The session covers informal as well as formal learning, joining groups, occasional taught workshops, mid and long-term accredited and non-accredited courses, practical certified courses, placements, funding and applications for awards. The workshop will take you through the options and opportunities available and how best to make them work for you. You will address how to plan your learning so that you are not overwhelmed, and how to fund the training. There are a huge variety of possibilities and through this workshop you should have the resources you need to make informed choices.
