Brief overview of the Diploma
The Diploma in Applied Permaculture Design is an Action Learning based course involving a minimum of two years of tutor-supported self-study. You essentially make up your own course, studying what interests you, whilst also fulfilling two essential and four complementary criteria along the way. This you map out at the beginning of your Diploma in the form of a draft Action Learning Pathway, much of which may well change as you proceed. The essence of the Diploma is to guide you through a series of design processes, learning as you go and turning you into a much more experienced designer by the end of it.
