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.
 

After my GCSEs I knew I wanted to stay in education and continue to learn. However, I also knew I wanted to do something completely different. Hadlow offered exactly what I needed. The course is ideal. The lecturers really encourage individuals to flourish and progress on their own design paths. We are shown the basics of floral design and cover many of the traditional types, as well as modern arrangements, so that our essential skills are built up. As a course it was perfect for me because before starting I'd not had any experience in putting arrangements together - this can only really be taught through practical assignments. The skills I've developed this year I'm confident will make me employable. I'm planning on progressing to the Level 3 Diploma to build up my qualifications and technical ability before hopefulyl pursuing a career in floristry.
