I completed my Level 2 Diploma in Floristry with Merit at Greenmount in June 2012 and was delighted to be offered a permanent job with my Level 2 placement provider, Penelope Flowers, Belfast. I returned to Greenmount in September to study for the Level 3 Diploma on a part-time basis.
In April I had the opportunity to take part in the EU funded Leonardo project for floristry at Greenmount. This involved a group of students going on a two week work experience trip to the Netherlands in partnership with Groenhorst College, Arnhem. We worked in leading Dutch flower shops, had training sessions with our Dutch partner students at Groenhorst and visited growers and the famous Dutch auctions in Aalsmeer. I’ve learned a lot through this trip and I can honestly say I look forward to going in to both work and College.
