Regional and Local (ReAL) Diploma Model - pilot scheme in Scotland

A group of tutors and other diplomates have got together to offer the diploma in a different way whilst continuing to work with the Permaculture Association. The newly formed Permaculture College No. 1 will soon be accepting applications.  

The aim of the college is to create a nimble and dynamic diploma system that encourages diversity, growth, engagement and fun and it is hoped that eventually there will be thriving network of colleges throughout Britain and beyond. The diploma fees are unchanged and applications are still made via the office. For full details of the college, see the ReAL download in the Useful Documents section on the Find Out More page.
