The Level 2 Technical Certificate in Floristry is a suitable qualification if you are looking to start a career within the floristry industry. If you like to interact with others, be creative and are keen to develop practical, technical floristry skills, then this qualification is for you.
Through this qualification, you will learn about different flowers and plants and how to look after them. You will also learn that there is more to floristry than flowers and that for florists to be successful, they need to understand their tools, environment and the finishing touches that make a difference.
