Fareham College

“ABC Awards offer excellent portfolio documentation that is already mapped to the outcome criteria making assessment and tracking easy to follow.

ABC Awards staff  are always available by phone and are very responsive to the needs of our College. Sometimes you need an answer fast and to be able to pick up the phone and always get a reply quick means that the issue is closed quickly.”

Moulton College

Moulton College has been delivering the ABC Awards L2 Certificate in Arboriculture for a number of years. The course has attracted learners from a range of different career and arboricultural backgrounds. Some learners have used the course as a stepping stone to enable them to achieve a change in career and this has been particularly useful to them when they have coupled their ABC Awards qualification with the additional qualifications to obtain the full RFS Certificate in Arboriculture. Other learners have used the course to complement a Work Based Diploma or to gain tree knowledge that they did not have, despite having worked in the Arboriculture industry for some time. Moulton College values the L2 Certificate in Arboriculture course and intends to continue to offer it as part of its suite of arboricultural qualifications.

Duncan Armstrong –  Studying Level 4 Arboriculture at Guildford College

“This is a fantastic course! All the right ingredients to develop understanding, improve career prospects and give you the tools to build on business opportunities. The best features of the course are the range and depth of information on most subjects. I really enjoyed the ancient trees, fungal colonisation and understanding the research behind new pruning techniques.”

“Enjoyable and informative course. A good first step for those who want to develop a broader understanding of arboricultural theory and concepts.”
