Information for Prospective International Students:
Jo and her experienced team have many years of working in the floristry industry and education. Their passion for teaching promotes growth and development in their students who flourish, succeed and achieve their goals and ambitions.With strong links within Asia, Jo often travels to deliver workshops internationally for groups and one to one sessions, especially for Korean students. We also have very close links with the English Language Schools in the Bournemouth area, providing floristry training to supplement their English studies.

The Academy is situated on the outskirts of Bournemouth Town Centre, within easy reach of shopping and entertainment on direct bus routes; and its thriving student population.
Less than two hours from London by road or train, the neighbouring towns of Bournemouth and Poole are located on the South Coast of England and offer a blend of traditional seaside attractions with busy and modern lifestyles. Bournemouth is famous for its 11 kilometres of sandy beaches. It has an exciting and vibrant nightlife, beautiful parks and gardens and a cosmopolitan atmosphere. Poole has Europe’s largest natural harbour and is famous for watersports including kite-surfing, wind-surfing, sailing and jet-skiing. Along the coast from Poole is the World Heritage Jurassic Coast and the Weymouth and Portland National Sailing Academy, which will host the 2012 Olympic Games. From Poole you can take the ferry to France, Spain or the Channel Islands.
