“RHS Level 2 Certificate”


written by drPorterfield193 on 14/03/2019

The course material itself was incredibly detailed and helpful, though I did notice in some instances that the pages repeated themselves in some sections.
The reason I wouldn't reccommend this college is because the "tutor support" they offer is fairly subpar. Tutors may take a week to respond to your questions by email, and mine even complained that I'd asked too many (I sent 8 across for the entire first lesson of 200 pages) and that he did not have the time to answer them.
When I emailed the college they promised a prompt reply, but have so far not responded after a week. I'd say for distance learning, the material is good provided you don't need much support. And do not expect anything prompt.

The student politely requested a new tutor on 06/03/2019 and we were happy to appoint our head tutor to help her. The student’s issue is now resolved and we are happy that she is continuing with her studies.

Kind regards

I can attest to this- the first tutor eventually complained that 'nobody had asked me as many questions as you' (I'd sent a list of about 8 after reading the first workbook), and once I'd switched tutors it had gotten a lot better.

Can I ask if the student had completed a level 1 before studying level 2?

RHS 2 courses do not require any previous qualifications. The student only complained abourt weak tutoring.
