Horticulture and Landscape Design
If plants are your passion, then our range of horticulture programmes will develop your skill and equip you with industry recognised qualifications which combine theoretical knowledge and practical application.
Career opportunities for graduates include roles such as farming, gardening, organic horticulturalist, grower or landscaper.
Turn your love of art and flowers into a flourishing career. Floristry covers topics from the conditioning and preparation of products to handling, care, and customer service skills. The material cost for the course covers all the flowers and materials used to design products such as flower arrangements, corsages, hand-tied bouquets, posies and floral gifts.
Gaining an industry recognised Floristry qualification from SIT opens up opportunities to work in floristry retail, at hotels and event venues, on staff in major corporate and government organisations, or as a business owner.
SIT also offers evening courses in Floral Design for people who would like a 'taster' course to gain confidence with the art of floristry.
