This apprenticeship programme develops the knowledge and practical/technical skills for those working as an apprentice in floristry.
Floristry apprentices are based with an employer for a minimum of 30 hours per week and assessment takes place within the work place with students only attending college where a skills gap occurs or when additional teaching is required.
The college has links with floristry employers and will try to place apprentices in employment, however this cannot be guaranteed so we advise applicants to look for their own employer.
On this unit based course you will learn how to:
4 GCSEs at A*-D grades (or acceptable alternatives) including English Language with Maths no lower than an E. You will also need to gain a suitable employer.
Work-based Assessment and Coursework.
Successful students continuing in employment can progress onto our Level 3 Floristry Apprenticeship programme.
Staff and Facilities:
At The Sheffield College's Hillsborough Campis you will learn from staff with a range of floristry qualifications and floral industry backgrounds. There are excellent practical facilities available for both Floristry and Horticultural courses.
