The programme will introduce relevant live projects, commercial and client-focused activity through a Final exhibition of student work and a design installation. These will encourage the student to explore and experiment into developing design techniques and materials outside the context in which first studied, proposing new and exciting ways to approach floristry design. It is intended that this approach will allow students to follow their own creative direction whilst under the supervision of dedicated specialist tutors. What will I study? The programme aims to:
- Provide students with a curriculum that encourages experimentation of creative skills within floristry design, whilst finely tuning professional skills to enable the students to effectively plan and gain sustainable employment.
- Produce graduates with an entrepreneurial mind-set and skills to generate original ideas in response to identified needs and shortfalls within the floristry industry, with the ability to act upon this in personal development planning.
- Produce capable and well-rounded independent graduates with higher-level practical skills that can contribute to the wider economy and developments taking place, particularly in relation to the Floristry Industry.
- Provide a flexible learning environment that enables students to shift from an abstracted study to developing knowledge and skills that can help them adapt to changing and future environments.
