Leading tutors

It is important to us that every one of our tutors is a practicing professional. So not only will you receive tuition from Andrew Wilson on the Garden Design Diploma, you’ll also work with tutors such as Peter Thurman, technical specialists such as Richard Curle and award winning designers and specialists including Olivia Kirk, Adam Frost, Jo Thompson and James Aldridge.

We also employ the best computer aided design (CAD) tutors because it’s an essential skill if you are to succeed in your career. Training in SketchUp and Vectorworks, industry standard software, is included in the Garden Design Diploma Course at no extra cost. Studio days will see you working individually and in small groups with a number of tutors as we believe that it is important to have at least 2 tutors available to support you on these creative days. Indeed, on a typical studio day you would expect to have not just a design specialist but also CAD and other experts to link in with the assessments being taken at the time.

On our Planting Design Diploma we have a similarly high level of tutor to student ratio. Course leader Andrew Fisher Tomlin is well-known for his work on some high profile public and residential projects and leads studio sessions as well as teaching. He is joined by some of the UK’s leading planting design professionals such as Nigel Dunnett, Carolyn Willitts and Amanda Patton as well as award-winning planting designers such as Graham Bodle. Sustainable solutions are an important part of our work and so training takes account of this alongside the need to create practical solutions that support your design business.
