You need English and maths skills to get on in life. They will support your studies at the College, help with everyday tasks and pave the way to future career success.
If you don’t already have a grade 4 or above in GCSE English and Maths – or equivalent qualifications – you will continue studying these subjects as part of your course at Derby College.
We’ll support you all the way: working with you on the right programme of development throughout your time with us.
When you’ve completed your course, why not broaden your horizons further still at Derby College? Additional qualifications in subjects such as Horticulture and Environmental Conservation are exciting choices. Or check out our courses in Business, Enterprise and Management if you would like to set up a venture of your own.
As a five-year-old girl, Nadia Di Tullio would sit enthralled watching the florist at work next door to her parents’ newsagent business. It sparked a lifelong love of flowers – a passion which she has transformed into a thriving career, with help from Derby College.
Today, her business – Nadia Di Tullio Flowers – has earned a national reputation for exquisite wedding florals. Her distinctive work has featured in leading magazines and wedding blogs, and she is regularly called upon to provide specialist articles giving advice on floristry.
An interest in flowers has stayed with me since childhood – and, as the years went by, I was determined to move away from a conventional career and dedicate my working life to creating something I love.
I thoroughly enjoyed the learning process at Derby College, gaining insights from professional tutors who really knew what they were doing and being part of a varied group of learners who all contributed different skills, knowledge and perspectives.
