I was getting married and wanted to do my own flowers, so the floristry courses were perfect. I started on a beginners course, then progressed to Floristry Levels 1 then 2. My class turned in to a really close knit little group, we’re friendly and stay in touch, so not only have I picked up some fantastic skills, I’ve made a lot of new friends too!

I left school with CSEs in Needlecraft, Art and Cookery and I’m a mother to three children. I’ve really embraced learning at Bolton College, and benefited from a multitude of courses, including iPad for Beginners and also Computers for Beginners. This year, I was rewarded for my efforts with a visit from the Mayor, who presented me with a certificate in recognition of my progression in further learning.
