A Gardeniser is a key coordinating role working inside a community garden or farm. The training teaches aspiring Gardenisers the importance of cohesion, participation, and social inclusion and how to work effectively with volunteers and staff and create a sustainable community-supported farm or garden. We are delighted to launch the first course in the UK using a blended learning approach. This comprehensive training course combines educational materials and opportunities for interaction online with traditional online classroom methods. This is combined with the internship which lets you work on your own and involves visits to other community gardens/farms and with other learners and mentors.

Gardeniser Pro uses the European Credit System for Vocational Education and Training (ECVET) which is a technical framework for the recognition of learning outcomes with a view to achieving a qualification. ECVET works hand in hand with the European Qualifications Framework (EQF) to provide greater transparency in European qualifications.
The GARDENISER PRO Training Course is divided into 3 Modules which represent the core competencies of a Gardeniser. Each module includes different units.
The program works through the 3 modules over the course of 10 weeks for 4 hours a week- 2 hours using pre-filmed lessons and/or activities and 2 hours working together through webinars and online meetings once a week in English.
In total the course will cover 80 hours of learning including classroom training and practical internship work which can be done to fit your own schedule. Once this training is completed learners can take the online test to obtain the Gardeniser Pro licence. The whole Gardeniser Pro training pathway (training course + internship) gains a total of 7,5 ECVET credits.
