Training in such a rewarding profession can lead to all manner of career opportunities; whether it’s working in a shop, freelancing, travelling to far off places, or further training to open your own business – with flowers, the world is most definitely your oyster. Selecting the right training provider to set you off on your floristry journey is crucial.
A central part of the British Florist Association is the BFA Training & Education Group. Passionate about raising standards in the florist industry through qualifications, assessment and competition, the Group brings together floristry tutors and employers to establish floristry as a recognised, skilled profession in its own right.
Training is fundamental to the BFA and our Member Colleges are central to both the BFA and the training providers many of whom make up BFA Training & Education Group.
Colleges that are members of the BFA have met the standards of excellence needed to become a BFA recognised training provider. They run accredited courses that would benefit a range of students.
We highly recommend choosing a BFA Accredited college when seeking floristry training.
