This week has seen J’s Bouquets have its first ever work experience student. Our student was from the local high school and at J’s Bouquets we wanted our student to truly experience working in a florist shop! Each day our student was taught a different aspect of floristry design from weddings to sympathy, contract work to conditioning flowers and everything in between! Considering our student had never worked with flowers before we were truly amazed at her level of skill. Her work and her design ideas were fantastic.
Many students have a positive experience when out on a placement and others have a negative experience. It was vitally important to us here at J’s Bouquets to allow our student to have a positive experience. When a student gives 100% and is keen and willing to learn then it is vital that the employer gives 100% back. Our first ‘work experience’ experience has been positive and paves the way for future students to experience what it is like to run a floristry business.
Congratulations to Hennessy on completing your work experience with J’s Bouquets. You have worked incredibly hard and I hope you have had as much fun learning as we have had teaching.
