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

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.

RHS Qualifications updates

The RHS are in the process of updating their qualifications and have recently released some information on the key changes they’re planning to make, please visit their dedicated page for further information:

You can still enrol now onto the current RHS qualifications and complete your examinations; RHS have recommended that the qualifications will remain available until the end of academic year 2021-22 and transitional arrangements will be confirmed as soon as they have been published. 

Horticultural Correspondence College are reviewing the changes and will be accepting enrolments onto the revised qualifications from their planned release date and further details will follow.

Season’s greetings

As we approach the festive season we want to send you our best wishes after what has been an unsettling and challenging year for us all.

We are pleased that many of our students have found comfort and fulfilment in home study – whether they have been studying with us for a while or recently decided to learn something new. We would like to congratulate all of our students on their successes and achievements in these difficult circumstances. We are looking ahead to 2021 and helping new and existing students achieve their goals.

We have strived to do our utmost to support you with as little disruption as possible and we will continue to do so as we all move into the New Year.

Please note, we are closed from 12pm on Christmas Eve, December 24, reopening at 9am on Monday, January 4. If you enrol with us over the Christmas period, we will despatch course materials on our return on January 4.

We would like to wish all the very best for the holiday season and for the New Year.

From us all at Horticultural Correspondence College
