Description: Diploma Course
The garden design diploma course from
the Garden Design Academy of Ireland
The comprehensive design course is divided into four sections, each corresponding to its own information packed textbook. Throughout the course you will complete ten assignments designed to prepare you for situations you'll come across in the real world of design. Your professional course tutor will review each assignment carefully and will provide feedback and guidance to help you reach your full potential.
The course begins with the fundamentals that all garden designers need to know. That base knowledge is then built on to develop each student's imagination and to discover and nurture their own individual design style. From there the course expands to deepen the student's knowledge and experience in a wide range of situations. The student learns how to assess a client's needs, how to prepare a presentation and how to communicate effectively with a client. The end result is a student with a well-rounded education and the confidence needed to begin a career in the garden design industry.|
Credentials: Open Distance Learning Quality Council
The Garden Design Academy of Ireland has earned accreditation from the Open and Distance Learning Quality Council (ODLQC). Independently established in co-operation with the Secretary of State for Education for the public benefit in 1969, the ODLQC promotes lifelong learning and raises industry standards for distance education. It awards accreditation only when the activities of a particular college meet its stringent standards.
Conducted by independent experts, the accreditation process rigorously assesses whether a college's administration, tutorial support, educational materials and publicity meet ODLQC standards. The council continues to monitor accredited colleges to ensure that they fully serve the needs of their students. Re-accreditation assessments are conducted at intervals not exceeding three years.
