Subject Area Overview
By studying a floristry course at Hadlow College, you can become part of an industry which is associated with life’s sentimental moments and worth approximately £1.5bn a year.
Our floristry courses will give you the opportunity to explore your creative side using practical skills as well as take part in competitions such as RHS Hampton Court and the Chelsea Flower Show. You will discover how to maximise the life of cut materials and understand the historical significance of many floristry designs.
Ultimately, upon finishing your course at Hadlow College, your career in the floristry sector could involve floral design but may also include wholesale buying and selling, event management and the selling of related products.
Hadlow College was initially recommended to me and I decided to attend the Open Day to get a feel for the place. From the moment I stepped onto campus I loved the look of it and, since I enjoyed the Open Day so much, I immediately decided to apply. The College has such a relaxed environment with a real range of people – both in ages and experience. The tutors are always there to help and encourage; passing on their personal knowledge and experiences of the industry for you to take away and use. The experience I have gained here has made me so much more confident in my floristry designs – I am now happy to advise customers and, because I can say I’ve got this qualification, they now know exactly what I’m capable of. My future plans, once I’ve finished this course, is to stay on and study the Level 4 (and potentially the Level 5) to further develop my skills.
