RHS Qualifications updates – Autumn 2021

The RHS is in the process of updating its qualifications. For learners currently studying or thinking of studying, further information on the changes, transition arrangements and time frames for completion for Levels 2 and 3 can be found here https://www.rhs.org.uk/education-learning/articles/rhs-qualifications-statement

The current suite of qualifications will be available until April 2022 and learners will have until the final exam session scheduled for February 2024 to successfully achieve the qualification on which they have enrolled. We are intending to offer the new qualifications, subject to approval, which RHS intend to launch in September 2022.

It is normal practice for awarding organisations to update their qualifications from time to time and no learners will be disadvantaged by the introduction of these new qualifications.


Compliments of the season

2021 has flown by in the blink of an eye, with many more of our students overcoming challenges and adversity to achieve personal and professional goals.

We have also been pleased to welcome many new students onto our courses and have heard from new and existing students alike that they have enjoyed channelling their focus and energy into their studies this year. We look forward to supporting you all on your training in the New Year and beyond.

In light of the announcement of further ‘Plan B’ Government restrictions, we’d like to reassure you we will continue to do all we can to support you in your studies, with staff working from home where possible.

Please note, the College will be closed from Christmas Eve, Friday, December 24th until Tuesday, January 4th.

With all best wishes of the season.
