Our floristry students – under the guidance of course leader Louise Roffey – are providing a five star service to brides and grooms on their wedding days to rival London’s top florists.

The team recently provided stunning table and pedestal arrangements, along with all the bouquets and buttonholes, at a beautiful wedding at the Devonport House Hotel in Greenwich, making a huge impression on the family and guests. The groom’s mother, who organised the wedding, said afterwards, “What you created was breath taking – exceeding expectation doesn’t even come close. It was not only the arrangements themselves, it was your attention to detail. I just don’t know how you did it!”

Guided by the couple’s choice of colour scheme, Louise and her team of students came up with an original design for the arrangements – featuring deep red roses and seasonal green foliage – which looked dramatic against a white backdrop.



Louise had worked closely with the groom’s mother for the months leading up to the big day, providing an impeccable service despite the fact that she was also busy organising her own wedding at the time!

The College has excellent links with local venues such as the Devonport House Hotel, which enables floristry students to get real experience of creating arrangements for clients. During September our students will be providing flowers for another wedding in Clapham, while their work is also being showcased at the Hotels Wedding Fair.

Many people dream of working as a chef in a top restaurant: Lewisham Southwark College gives learners the experience and skills to make that dream come true.

Two students who have just completed the Level 3 Professional Cookery – Raouf Zemirli and Patrick Wade – have won highly sought-after first jobs at two of London’s leading restaurants.

Raouf has taken up a full-time position as sous chef at sushi restaurant Inamo Soho, which was recently named one of the top 10 places to eat by Stylist magazine. Patrick has secured a full-time commis chef job at five star restaurant One Aldwych having demonstrated his exceptional level of motivation and enthusiasm during a two day work placement with them.

Thanks to the College’s excellent links with leading restaurants and chefs around the Capital, our Professional Cookery learners are given a broad range of experiences as a key part of their courses – opening their eyes to the careers they can aspire to if they work hard. Students recently got the chance, for example, to spend a day working at The Phoenix Restaurant with Jeff Foster, Executive Head Chef at the Hyatt Regency Churchill Hotel.

Every Friday also sees a restaurant briefing when learners play the roles of ‘kitchen team’ and ‘waiting team’ to practice communicating and working together, giving them a real insight into life in a busy restaurant environment.

Demonstrating the successful careers learners go on to pursue, Corrine Jones, who graduated in 2010, has just been promoted to junior sous chef at London’s Regency Churchill Hotel having spent five years working perfecting her skills in pastry.

Course tutor Aidan Fullerton comments, “For young people who want to forge a career in catering and hospitality, coming to the College provides experiences they wouldn’t get studying in a sixth form. We are very proud of our star students, who are always willing to go ‘above and beyond’ by sharing their knowledge to help other learners. Their success is very well-deserved.”

Coming to Lewisham Southwark College gives learners experiences that go way beyond the classroom – as Floristry students found when they got the chance to run floral crown workshops for staff.


Providing one of the highlights of the Immediate Media staff’s summer party, which was held at Newbury Racecourse, the two workshops run by Level 2 and 3 students were a great success. The students helped around 50 staff, many of whom were complete beginners, to use fresh flowers to create a stunning floral crown to take home, and demonstrated fantastic creativity and artistry with their own designs.

Floristry Lecturer Carol Campbell comments, “Working with flowers is great fun and something a bit different for many people, so this was the perfect activity for the summer party. It was great for our students to get a taste of teaching others the skills they’ve learned – they really excelled themselves and helped to create some fabulous designs.”
