    Correspondence Courses


    The Floristry Training Correspondence Level 2 Course is conducted in your own environment so you will be able to work at your own speed. You will be monitored in a professional manner keeping in line with all educational syllabuses, covering informative and pictorial step by step instructions, for the construction, and presentation of all 10 units. All of your completed units will be forwarded with a witness a statement showing evidence of authenticity of your own work; this will be appraised and returned to you with a feedback report of success or working toward result. The course is ideal for persons who need to achieve a recognised knowledge for general and commercial floristry that if carefully managed will escalate and flourish into a successful business. If you want to continue to your final assessment, it will take place at the studio with a practical assessment, keeping in line with commercial timing for all pieces of work. This will complete your correspondence course and you will receive you’re well-earned in-house certificate. The certificate is presented on conclusion of your 2 day course showing evidence your professional development hours and levels of competence achieved.
