Studying during compulsory school years doesn’t work out for everyone, but that doesn’t have to be the end of learning. No matter how many years have passed since you were last in education, a course with Open Study College enables you to improve your future prospects and opens up opportunities. With a range of courses from traditionally academic subjects through to vocational interests, you can study towards a career you’ll love, like Hannah, who has studied our Level 3 Floristry course.
What’s your background in terms of education?
I completed my high school education, but I didn’t have the best school life. Following that school experience, college didn’t really work out for me.
What made you want to study your chosen course?
I’m a self-taught florist and decided I wanted to make a career out of it. I decided that the best way to make that a reality would be to study a floristry course which included practical training to put my learning into action.
What was your motivation for studying?
I wanted to make a better future for myself and develop a career path I would enjoy.
Why did you choose distance learning over traditional study methods?
I work in a supermarket, so knew I wouldn’t have time to fit a full-time floristry course into my life. With distance learning I could fit my studying around my job.
Why did you choose to study with Open Study College?
After researching the options, I found that Open Study College had the best floristry course for me. I also liked that I could choose a study pack and receive physical course materials rather than having to study online.
What have you enjoyed most about your studies?
It’s been great learning new things about my career and not being rushed into assignment deadlines.
What do you plan to do with your course after completing your studies?
I plan to get a job working in a florist, with a view to one day owning my own florist shop.
Do you plan to study any further in the future?
If the right course was available I would consider it.
What are your career goals?
I hope to work my way up to a head florist or have my own floristry business.
Is there anything else you’d like to add?
I would recommend Open Study College to anyone. Learning later in life and at my own pace has been so much more beneficial to me. I am thankful to have been given the opportunity to return to studying.
Wishing Hannah every success in her job search and her dream career!
Whatever your previous education or personal circumstances, there’s no reason not to follow your dreams into a job you’ll love. A course with Open Study College can help you to develop the knowledge and skills you need; all at your own pace, in your own time and around your existing lifestyle.
