Two young floristry students from CAFRE’s Greenmount Campus were recently invited to showcase their design talent at the Skills Show in the NEC, Birmingham.
Sixteen year old Clara Agnew, Hamiltonsbawn, Co Armagh, and her seventeen year old classmate, Emma Fegan from Dundrum, Co Down, joined the Level 2 Diploma in Floristry programme at Greenmount in September. Already they have picked up some valuable floristry skills through College and weekly work placement with their local florist shops.
The two students were invited to represent CAFRE and demonstrate their skills to thousands of school children and teachers who visited the Skills Show, the largest vocational skills event in the UK calendar. They also had the opportunity to see the National Finals of the Worldskills Floristry event and bring home some fresh ideas for their design work.
