ACS Garden – ACS Distance Education

Established in 1979, ACS Distance Education has educated thousands of full and part-time students, many of whom have gone onto successful employment, both in industry or in their own businesses. Others have used their courses to develop a hobby, or simply broaden their general education.

We currently have over 3000 students enrolled in over 50 countries around the world.

The school employs 45 staff across the UK, Australia, U.S.A, and New Zealand.

Our courses are unique, built around the ideas of experiential learning and problem-based learning (Unlike competency-based training used elsewhere, we emphasise learning more and assessment less).

Courses and service have a truly global focus.

Courses have been developed with strong industry input from around the world and are continually updated on the basis of surveys undertaken by both current students and graduates every month of the year.

The school holds high the ideals of practical education, emphasising in all courses those things which are relevant to “real life”. Courses offered to cater for hobby interest through to formal training in industry and the professions.

Courses they offer:

Australian Native Plants



Fruit & Nuts

Garden Design

General Horticulture



Managing Animals
