The British Florist Association is the official voice of the UK floristry industry and the only trade organisation in the industry to be formally recognised as such. In recent years, Myerscough has won numerous BFA awards over the years, as well as being nominated a number of other times, including Training Provider of the Year three times in four years.
Myerscough’s floristry provision has been recognised as sector-leading for a long time, with a strong student offer allowing learners the pathway into a successful career in the profession. This offer has led to a host of industry awards and nominations over the last few years alone. The College was the first in the country to offer higher education level online study and also regularly attracts some of the industry’s biggest names to work closely with students.
Myerscough College and University Centre runs floral design courses at further and higher education level, with a range of full and part-time options available. The College also leads the way in offering innovative study methods, such as an Online Foundation Degree in Commercial Floral Design, which enables students to achieve a vocational based Higher Education qualification through part-time study.
