    RHS Certificates

    For everyone who has been waiting for their exam Certificates from June - good news, the RHS has now sent them out.  You may have seen on their web portal the information that the Certificates were printed in early September  - if so, then perhaps they really are individually signed by the Head of Education and the RHS President, because they sent them out on 10th October!

    Once your address labels are printed these will go out to you in the post this week, so please expect a reinforced A4 envelope at the address we have for you.

    Best wishes,

    Janet

    using ipads - can you help?
    by Janet Prescott - Sunday, 3 September 2017, 9:49 PM
     

    I have a student who wants to do blended learning, looking at video (youtube) and flash presentations as well as pdfs.  I'm not sure how well this will all work without being downloaded via a computer (apple computers run software that emulates PCs so everything is generally compatible).

    Can anyone using an ipad give me some advice for her?

    Many thanks,

    Janet
