This course is one of the highest level in floristry available in the UK and combines both advanced floristry design and construction with major event displays and this is backed up with relevant theory and practice. This course is delivered either on a full or part time basis with the latter also available as an online option which would suit people who already work in the floristry industry and are not able to attend classes in person. The facilities available in college are second to none with spacious classrooms and cooler, the teaching team are friendly but professional (including those who are not actually teaching you on your course) and can be contacted via college email at any time but can sometimes only reply at certain times as all the tutors teach several other classes at a time ( but you are advised of your best contact time). Learning materials and course information is available 24/7 on the college VLE as the college is very proactive at using printed materials as sparingly as possible. Throughout the college there is a very friendly and welcoming atmosphere from your fellow students and also other staff and principal who can often be seen around the college. The library is well stocked with subject specific books, journals and computers and staff are very accommodating and willing to obtain specific titles if required. There are plenty of catering facilities available across the college complex with varied menus. Vending machines are also located across campus. I would recommend not just this course but any of the floristry courses offered by this college as I am sure they will be run to the same high standards by these award winning tutors
