It arrived today.
Well it arrived today.
What arrived I hear you all ask with wonder.
My correspondence course.
I’ve decide to do the RHS level 2. I’m doing it with The Horticultural Correspondence College, Corsham, Wiltshire. I’m hoping to complete it with in17months. I say 17 as they give you 18months to do the course.
Obviously there is course work that you have to submit to get marked etc. They give you feedback and advice, and are at the end of a phone / email. To be honest I’ve only read the info that came with the course it all looks a bit daunting. I’m determined to complete the course and sit the two exams, even though you do get the option if you want to sit the exams. They cost extra though.
Some reasons for completing the course, are:
1. I’ve paid up front.
2. I dont like not finishing things
3. It is something I enjoy although this is going to be going a little deeper as at the moment my gardening is purley a love/passion.
4. I would love a career in horticulture once I finish the job I’m in at the moment.
5. It’s always good to keep learning and get some relevant qualifications behind you, if you are planning a career change like myself.
I shall keep you all informed as to how I get on, and possible ask for some advice, every now and then.
I’m now going to start reading the study notes for lesson one which is, The Plant -Classification, Structure and Function.
All 173 pages and thats with out the reccomended reading list.
Back to school.
