Floristry Courses

Floristry is a diverse and expanding business sector offering a career in a fascinating and dynamic profession that combines creativity, technical ability and business skills.

Designing floral arrangements is a creative job that requires inspiration and the ability to coordinate your vision into displays. Trends change so florists need to adapt their designs and shops if they want to stay current.

At CAFRE we offer two professional floristry courses; a Level 2 and Level 3 both of which are designed to provide training to allow florists to adapt and experiment with substrates and flowers.

CAFRE is a British Florist Association Member College with an experienced and dedicated teaching team. CAFRE offers accredited Floristry courses on a full-time or part-time basis, depending on numbers.

Our students have an enviable reputation for competition success. CAFRE Floristry students have reached the finals of the Royal Horticultural Society (RHS) Chelsea Florist of the Year Competition and WorldSkills UK Finals.
