Sandra decided to pursue a career in floristry later in life, after her children went to secondary school. She began her floristry training at Stockport College, and during her studies decided to buy a florist shop which she ran for 11 years. After later teaching floristry at Stockport College, she then decided to close her business and concentrate fully on her teaching career, joining Moulton College in 2009 as a Floristry lecturer.
“I am very fortunate to be a tutor at Moulton – taking learners through their qualifications to begin a career in this exciting industry. It is so satisfying to watch students enter competitions, and often return with prizes. Many graduates secure jobs as a result of their work placement, some set up their own businesses specializing in event or wedding floristry, some begin a teaching career. I’m so proud of them all.”
