Horticultural Qualifications

SQA level 2 Science in the Environment

There are a range of horticultural qualifications supported by the SQA that would enable pupils with an interest to explore these subjects and gain an appropriate level award.

Expertise would need to be sought from out with the school to ensure that the skills are there within the staff to deliver these qualifications.

Discussion with SQA would also need to take place before a centre was able to present pupils for these awards.
