Revised RHS Qualifications
The RHS is in the process of updating its qualifications. This is normal practice for any awarding organisation and ensures that qualifications remain relevant, accurate and up-to-date.
The RHS are working with employers, training providers and learners to ensure that they continue to offer interesting and relevant qualifications that provide high-quality gardening skills and knowledge, and prepare learners for employment in the current horticultural industry.
The updated qualifications are due to be submitted to the regulators (Ofqual, Qualifications Wales and CCEA for Northern Ireland) in 2021 for approval.
We appreciate that some learners may have concerns about the validity of qualifications they have either fully or partially completed. The RHS has confirmed that no learner will be disadvantaged by the introduction of the new qualifications and will be able to achieve the qualification on which they have enrolled.
For further information on the changes and transition arrangements for Level 2 and 3 please see the RHS website:
