The cost of the 5-day intensive training course to become a registered Junior Herbalist Leader is £1295. However, you can access the early bird price of just £995 if paid in full before 31.12.22. For this fee you will receive:

  • 5 full days tuition covering the whole 2-year course and including
  • teaching sessions in a way that engages all types of learners
  • practicals – making all the items and products in the course
  • safeguarding, insurance, and DBS requirements
  • administration, advertising, and finding suitable venues.
  • Comprehensive Leaders Handbook containing all the information needed to teach both years one and two including class plans, worksheets and answers, equipment lists, key facts, Health and Safety Risk Assessments.
  • A USB flash drive containing all printable paperwork including advertising flyers, letters for parents, consent forms, register and enrolment forms etc.
  • Ongoing support from myself and other JHC leaders
  • A qualification allowing you to advertise yourself as a ‘Registered Junior Herbalist Leader’ and entry onto the register shared by NIMH for promotional purposes.

Because of the high standard of the training and the course content it is a requirement that all herbalists enrolling on the JHC leader training program must:

  • Have graduated from a NIMH / EHTPA accredited course
  • Have a current membership with either NIMH or equivalent professional governing body which they must maintain throughout the period in which they advertise themselves as a registered JHC leader and whilst continuing to deliver the JHC course.
  • Have current appropriate professional insurance with either Balens (or similar who have agreed to cover the education and activities carried out in the JHC course), which again they must maintain throughout the period in which they advertise themselves as a registered JHC leader and whilst continuing to deliver the JHC course.

The course is only available through in-person attendance as the practical and safety aspects of this course prevent it from being suitable to be taught remotely. The course is taught to a very high standard and is only available to registered medical herbalists.

On completion of the course, you will be equipped with all the information and skills required to teach the two-year syllabus to children and be entered on to the register of JHC leaders maintained by NIMH.

The Institute award the certificates and badges to the leaders on successful completion of the training and to the children graduating at the end of each year.

Please note: accommodation is NOT included in the cost of the course and will need to be arranged and paid for separately. It is a non-negotiable requirement to have 100% attendance during the 5 days in order to qualify so please bear this in mind when booking travel and accommodation.

The number of attendees is strictly limited and places will be allocated on a first come, first served basis. All applications and payment must be received no later than 31st March 2023.
