Back up & Running!

The Eden alternative training course is back and is up and running!

How does it work?

It provides training to care homes, management and staff and encourages homes to train their own ‘in house trainers’ to run the programme as they wish.

The online course runs over 6 weeks, covers the same material as the 3-day Eden Associate courses and comprise 5 elements:

  1. 6 Online live 1-hourly tutorials running weekly.
  2. Working through the Eden Associate workbook.
  3. A series of relevant ‘Eden’ Video clips.
  4. An Eden course questionnaire to assist learning.
  5. Development of an individualised project that candidates work on to develop innovative ideas.


The training sessions can be completed whilst at work or from home.

Courses dates and frequency

The 6-week course runs continuously and a new one starts at the beginning of each alternate month, e.g., May, July etc. Each weekly online session runs for 1 hour.


An Eden “Train the Trainer” course, refresher courses and 1 day introduction courses will typically run after the Eden Associate course.
