Myerscough College’s floristry department has been shortlisted for yet more national awards.
The British Florist Association (BFA) Awards recognise the best in the industry with a prestigious annual ceremony. Myerscough College has four nods this year, having been shortlisted in the category of Training Provider of the Year, while staff members Sam Cook and Alison Ogden are nominated for Floristry Tutor of the Year. Myerscough student, Fiona West, who has just completed a Foundation Degree in Professional Floristry and Floral Design, is shortlisted for Newcomer of the Year.
Now in the fifth year, the BFA Industry Awards have established themselves as the place to be recognised within the industry. Each autumn the awards are presented at the Awards & Gala Dinner at FleurEx 2016. The ceremony takes place in October.
Voting for the finalists in all categories is now open & you can vote for the Myerscough College nominations by clicking here:
Voting closes on August 30th.
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 several BFA awards as well as being nominated a number of other times.
The nominations come on the back of another successful academic year for the floristry department. As well as these BFA nominations, the department has seen the staging of several major exhibitions showcasing the work of Myerscough College floristry degree students, which were all a huge success.
Myerscough College 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.
