Floristry Apprenticeship Level 2

This apprenticeship programme develops the knowledge and practical/technical skills for those working as an apprentice in floristry.


About the Course

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.
