Event Description

Apprentices working towards their Diploma in Applied Permaculture Design are welcome for a whole day of design support, including one-to-one tutorials, peer design shares, workshops and more.

What is taking place?
•    There will be an induction to the Diploma for new apprentices, focusing on understanding the diploma system and making a start on your action learning pathway design.
•    There will be a workshop on Transformative Action Learning, based on the Gaia University model, led by Nicole Vosper, one of the first UK Graduates of their University’s action-learning degree level programs. The workshop will focus on strategies to accelerate learning based on action learning principles and some of the practices embedded in the Gaia Uni approaches.
•    Tutors from around the South West will be available for personal and design support tutorials.
•    There will be space for peer support and group design share sessions, for apprentices to give feedback on each other’s work. As well as for action learning guilds.
•    Aranya will be leading a workshop on the Design Process to re-cap some of the frameworks and processes used in permaculture design.
•    There will be a workshop on documentation and how to design a system for yourself to capture your own work and learning more efficiently in a way that can disseminate your learning.
•    Tutors and apprentices are also welcome to offer workshops to share.

Directions: The Diploma support day is taking place at both Compton Dundon village hall & Brook End LAND learner centre. Click here for directions to Brook End. For information on getting to the village hall, click here.

Accommodation: Camping is available on the Saturday evening after the Convergence for apprentices staying for the Diploma Support Day on Sunday. We appreciate a donation of £6 to cover costs of the site. If you have additional needs that means camping is not practical/desirable, please email and we can try & locate a room for you. Just let us know.

Cost: The cost of the Diploma support day is £25 to cover the cost of the hall & dome hire. Payment for tutorials will need to be organised direct with your tutor. This is a grassroots volunteer-organised to support the permaculture community. If £25 is unaccessible to you, please email in confidence. A work share option may be a possibility.

Payment details will be sent over email.
