  • Is this course for you?

    Do you have a passion for flowers and all things floral? Do you want to create works of art that are admired by others?

    At Rodbaston College we have purpose-built floristry classrooms that exceed industry standards and allow you to develop and hone your skills in the best setting possible.

    Fresh flowers are used every week to practise and perfect displays and creations, with some materials also being sourced from the estate gardens.

    If you are looking to improve on existing skills or even if you are starting with little knowledge this course is a great steppingstone towards a career in floristry.

  • Required qualifications

    You will have ideally already completed the level 2 in Floristry, though previous experience and skills will be considered to take part in this course.

  • What skills will I develop?

    This career pathway increases the complexity of topics and skills based assessments that allows you to develop a greater and more rounded understanding of both the practical element of a florists trade as well as understanding the wider opportunities and possibilities the industry offers.

    A wide range of bouquets, displays and creations develop not only artistic interpretation but also cover the practical knowledge required to perfect such skills to the highest possible standard. There is also background knowledge to cover such as purchasing, marketing and sourcing creations and the costs involved, all aimed at moving swiftly into employment and increasing personal satisfaction.
