Level 1 land-based studies: floristry

I wanted to do something artistic, practical and creative and also learn a skill that I could use in the future. I really loved doing the practical work especially making hand-tied bouquets - by the end of the course I was able to make bouquets to give to friends and family. 

I remember making a punk styled hat for College Open Day exhibition – I liked doing that because it was different and we could create designs of our own choice.

The skills I have learnt in floristry will help me in any creative industry so I will have a wide range of choice for jobs.

Future Opportunities

  • Students usually come into college at age 14 and are on a two year programme. On successful completion of this they are then in a position to apply for a place on the 16+ full time study programmes.  Towards the end of the second year this is discussed with students as part of the progression tutorials.
  • On applying for a 16+ course students will be required to attend an interview for the course and will be processed as a new applicant.
  • Once students are a 16+ programme they are also in a position to apply for bursaries to support learning, travel etc.
