The Floristry School, Sheffield (in partnership with Sheffield College)

The Floristry School is a newly established independent training organisation created to further the development of professional florists and students wishing to enter the industry.

Our focus is on skills improvement and professional business development achieved through our own bespoke courses, accredited programmes and national apprenticeships.

We are proud to be an approved associate partner of Sheffield College, who support and accredit our student development programmes from Level 2 apprenticeships through to Level 5 Master Diplomas.

The accredited courses are accompanied by our own professional training, where design, theory and business knowledge are developed to help and guide both the new and established florist to compete within the exciting and challenging floral world.

Courses are delivered by a team of established tutors who have many years of commercial, business and educational floristry experience.  This is enhanced by visiting teachers and trainers who bring with them a wealth of specialist, creative and commercial knowledge.

Our contemporary training workshop is based within Eagle Works, Little Kelham, Sheffield, within the heart of the city with easy parking and plentiful coffee shops and cafes.
