The Principal of Australian Correspondence Schools (ACS), John Mason, visited Warnborough HQ last week to discuss extending the partnership between ACS and Warnborough. The partnership has been going strong for over ten years. Many of our short courses are developed by or with ACS and the unique form of delivery means that the emphasis is on learning, rather than achieving a piece of paper.
Mr Mason is visionary in his approach and this is apparent in the video interview he did with Dr Julian Ng. In it, he talks about how and why he founded ACS – there was a glaring need for horticultural courses and no one was addressing this in Australia; what challenges educators and students face today – change itself; and his thoughts on accreditation – while education has advanced, the idea of accreditation and how it is done has not.

Warnborough and ACS will be launching a brand new project soon, so stay tuned for updates.
