Graduated: BA (Hons) Professional Floristry
Occupation: Manager of a Florist shop
My Writtle University College I chose to study at Writtle College to further my knowledge in
Floristry. I want to be able to teach one day and bearing that in
mind I thought that this course would be perfect to progress me
to that goal.
Some of my favourite memories of studying at Writtle were
learning about other subjects that surrounded the flower industry
such as postharvest and the international trade and supply Chain.
I also created an exhibition for my final floristry exam based on
my chosen designer, and helped to make jewellery at the Prima
Comfort Fashion Awards, which were all opportunities that I
would not have had if I had not chosen to do this course.
As a part-time student I found Writtle College a nice place to
escape to, all of the staff are very helpful and a lot of resources
are made available during your studies.
My Career Path Whilst studying at Writtle College I managed a flower shop in
Middlesex, even though I enjoy working in a busy shop I want to
hopefully one day pass on the knowledge that I have learned in
teaching, hence choosing to study at Writtle.
My goal for the future is to pursue the route of teaching in
education and I intend to undertake a teaching qualification.
As a possible alternative route, I may also choose to continue
learning about postharvest in the flower industry to become
more involved in the commercial side of this Industry.
My Current Job In my current job I am responsible for the day-to-day running of
the flower shop, by taking and making up orders, ordering
flowers from Holland, taking wedding consultations, making up
many wedding flowers on a regular basis, conditioning flowers
and staff organisation.
I particularly enjoy buying for the company, I love discovering
new products and coming up with fresh ideas.
