  • Welcome!

    Welcome to Tree Life's Demonstration Course! We've created this course to let you look at our Learner Portal, a crucial tool for all our students and the hub of all important information. 

    Previous students might notice that this site is slightly different - this is our new update, rolling out over the summer! 

    If you are looking for information on our Short Courses, please click here: Tree Life Short Courses

    As a guest, you can look at most things here; to participate in some activities you will need to set up an account, which takes just a couple of seconds and will be deleted on request.

    We have setup the portal with items that we would have for our candidates joining us on the courses and some additional information to help you pick the course that's right for you.

  • Classes

    Our classes are held in different locations, but you'll always get the same kind of structure: a full day class with a small number of students, repeated on the same weekday with a few weeks in between to allow you time to complete your assignments. You'll have your full schedule of classes given to you when you start, so you can plan ahead, and every class will send you home with an Assessment Brief to work on in your own time and if you miss a class then don't worry as all of the Assessment Briefs will be on the portal ready & waiting for you. 

    We've given you more details on our different venues below - in a format that shows off some more of what our portal can do.

  • Tree Life Short Courses

    We have more information on our Tree Life website for all of our short courses including the contents of each of the days, offers for more than one course & the ways to book on to a course.

  • How we're adapting to Covid-19

    We have currently switched all of our ongoing courses for the 2019-2020 academic year to remote learning and we've been delivering teaching by video and audio recordings, alongside extra tutor contact where needed.

    From September 2020, all courses have begun by remote learning. If by January 2021, social distancing is no longer required it may be safe to return to classroom sessions; these will be optional and remote learning will remain available. This will not affect the quality of your course and will not delay the start of the course or extend it. 

    Looking ahead at the 2020-2021 academic year, we are offering courses at all three of our usual locations. We will also be offering L2, L4 and L6 online again, as well as the online extended Tree Mail courses for Levels 4 and 6.
