About the Level 3 Floristry Certificate

The art of floristry is more skilled than you may imagine. As a profession, it involves much more than going out and picking flowers. A trained florist is expected to know everything from design and styling to general flower and plant care. By studying this Level 3 distance learning course, you will develop the skills you need to flourish as a florist.

Whether you want to join an existing organisation or start your own flower business, the course could be your ticket to success. Students will study 10 engaging modules over the course of their qualification. These educational units will explain everything from plant cutting and characteristics to marketing, promotion and customer relations.

Who should study this course?

This home study course is aimed at students who have an interest in pursuing a career in floristry. Whether you want to work in a store or start your own business, this course will help you achieve that. The qualification is also suitable for individuals wanting to take up a new hobby.

At Stonebridge, we do not ask for our students to have any prior qualifications or experience. Our only requirement is that our students are willing to engage in home learning, and that they have a way of accessing our online course materials.

What happens after the course?

On successful completion of this distance learning course, you will have the skills and knowledge required to start a career in the floristry profession. If you enjoyed working with flowers and want to expand your expertise, you may consider studying another related course.

Alternatively, you will now be in a good position to apply for your first floristry role. If you prefer to work independently, this course will help you to start up business on you own. Before you know it, you could be working on your own time, selling bespoke bouquets. Related careers include:

Professional Membership

On completion of this course you will be eligible to join the following Professional Associations(s):

Anyone who is studying for or has completed a course endorsed by an Ofqual approved awarding body is eligible to join Qualifications Register.  The Qualifications Register (QR) is an independent register that aims to serve both members of the public and those professionals who hold recognised qualifications.

QR's primary aim is to provide transparency to members of the public and employers. The QR is a searchable database that allows them to find a practitioner and view the relevant qualification and endorsements the practitioner holds. The member of the public is then able to make an informed decision in relation to the suitability of the practitioner.  QR also tracks whether practitioners have insurance, again something that is useful for members of the public.  QR can also help professionals gain insurance or find professional indemnity cover.  Click here to find out more.

Members of the public can check an independent source with complete confidence that the practitioner has the qualification(s) they claim to have and that any additional CPD the practitioner has, is verified and quality assured to make sure that the CPD is being done on a regular basis. QR tracks a practitioners endorsed CPD (in unison with our CPD accreditation partner Lifetime Awarding) and other key signals to help members of the public and employers to come to a more informed decision about the professional they intend to use. This is an enormously valuable signal that's increasingly important as business becomes more deregulated and privatised.

For practitioners QR helps you market your skills, endorsements and feedback transparently to a wider audience. It also gives you access to a community to help make you more able to progress and succeed in your field of expertise.  Click here to find out more.
