How to create a correspondence course
Not everyone enjoys online courses or screen based learning, some people prefer pen and paper and that’s absolutely fine.
If you want to create a course but you’re unsure about online courses then this could be a great option for you.
There are very few paper-based correspondence courses available so there’s a huge gap in the market.
The course materials are all sent via email and can include downloadable course booklets, videos, webinars, recipes, hints and tips and much more.

How to create good student relationships
The downside to both online and correspondence courses is that in their nature they can be very insular. Students need to interact with you but also they need to interact with each other.
I’ll explain what I’ve done to combat this and ways you can develop good student relationships from the start.
You've got the course - now how do you sell it?
It’s important to say up front that what works for one person isn’t going to work for another person, there are lots of variables involved in selling anything.
I’ll take you through what worked for me and what didn’t and some ways you can discover the right way for you.
Did you know I offer a mentorship programme?
A mentor can be useful at any stage of your herbal journey, whether you’re a new student looking for support and guidance, a complete beginner looking for one to one advice and learning, or a newly qualified herbalist looking for support.
