4 Week Career Change Course

We understand that you have a passion for flowers and a dream that one day you might work with them every single day. We had that dream too and so completely understand just how daunting it can be to transform that dream into a reality – but it is within your reach, so we are here to work with you and guide you every step of the way. Each person that walks through our doors has a different story to tell and we like to think that each of those stories has helped to develop and grow our own skills as teachers. Our relaxed and welcoming style of teaching ensures that everybody, regardless of past experience or current skill levels, gets the time and attention they need to build their confidence and find their own style as a professional florist in the making.

The Course in taught over four weeks and during that time we will work through the foundations of floral work from the basic ‘hand tie’ through to vase arrangements, wedding design, sympathy flowers, event and contract work. Aside from the practical, we also help you to build the skills you will need to start your new business, including marketing, branding, social media, business planning and funding. Also included in the course are a set of T&C’s for florists provided by Emerald and Jade Flowers.

Each week consists of tuition from Monday – Friday. Class starts at 10.00 and our day finishes up around 16.30.
