qualifications. Please see the RHS website for information on the changes to
their Level 2 qualifications from September 2022 and Level 3 qualifications from

What will I learn?
This four unit module is delivered over four months and covers the following:
-Understanding garden features
-Plant selection and planning
-Understanding the choice, establishment and maintenance of plants and lawns
– Understanding the production of outdoor vegetables and fruit and protected environments and their use in plant cultivation.
Each unit will be assessed by a separate written examination covering all learning outcomes specified in the unit. Examinations will be offered in February and June.
It is intended that students undertake the examinations for RHS in the academic year of registration, this allows for the best chance of success as exams are taken while the syllabus knowledge is fresh.
Where will it lead me?
Learners can progress onto further Level 2 or Level 3 RHS Courses of their choice.
Please note RHS examinations – it is intended that students undertake the examinations for RHS in the academic year of registration, this allows for the best chance of success as exams are taken while the syllabus knowledge is fresh.
Please note that the RHS Qualifications are changing for September 2022 and therefore, this will be the last year learners can enrol on the old syllabus for RHS Level 2 Theory courses.
For anyone who requires the full RHS Level 2 Diploma this will be the last opportunity to undertake this course.
The new course (RHS Level 2 Certificate in Principles of Horticulture) will also be running in September 2022.
