Before starting this course I had no prior knowledge in floristry. The course not only gave me the tools I needed to get started but also gave me the passion and the confidence to move forward with floristry as a career.

Through the content I have learned within the course I have been able to not only make, but also sell many of my own designs as well as book a couple of future events.

This has been a great launching pad for me into a career I am truly enjoying. I highly suggest for anyone who is considering floristry to start with this course.

Laura Meers

Great course which is simple to do but you get a great qualification in the end and if you fail a unit it is simply to retake.

Full knowledge of area so it makes it easier to start a business and tells you the legal things you need to know as well

Charlie Thurlow

It was a very informative and thorough course. And was made easy to learn and understand different aspects of Hotel Industry and Management issues through day-to-day examples.
It not only enlightened me with Hotel Management but Management in general as well.

I will keep these precious tips and notes handy to refer back to them when needed. In a nutshell, money well spent and I will come back for more courses in future.

The beauty of this course was how easy yet composite this course was. And the manner in which the notes are written made it very easy for me to carry on grasping knowledge from the beginning to the end.

Imran Amjad

Easy to use! Fantastic! It has massively helped me whilst I have been working in Human Resources.

I couldn't ask for anything better.

I can't wait to start another course with you! Definitely worth every penny and I would highly recommend I was also able to brush up on my excel knowledge too which is really imperative in my role.

Before I started the course I had little knowledge on how to use Excel I am now a Excel wiz! Such a fantastic course I would recommend it to anyone working in HR or looking to get into HR

Eva Stenson

Really interesting and a good starting point for increasing my understanding and knowledge. Easy to access at any time, modules were nice and short so good bursts of information and easy to understand. I feel that I have gained knowledge that I can take forward within my current profession and apply my knowledge to get the best possible results for my organisation in all forms of media. Would recommend this course for anyone looking to start off in this career and looking to gain solid background information to take you forward. You have the flexibility to learn in your own time and take it at your own pace which is great when you are already working full time.

Sophie Graham

Very Informative course, breaks everything down easily into simple steps.Thank you.
