Green light for study revamp

The RHS has launched 10 new horticultural qualifications that will commence in September. They will meet the requirements of the Qualifications & Credit Framework (QCF) and replace existing RHS qualifications at levels 2 and 3.

RHS head of accreditation and qualifications Philip Windle said: "The QCF is part of the Government's reform of vocational qualifications intended to make them more relevant to employers' needs and more accessible.

"In developing our new qualifications we have taken the opportunities offered by the QCF to make them more flexible and to widen their appeal."

The new qualifications being launched are designed to be studied part time and aim to underpin horticultural knowledge and practical skills at levels 2 and 3.
