BFA Training Schools
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. Just as Training is fundamental to the BFA, our partnerships with BFA Training Schools are central to both the BFA and the training providers many of whom make up BFA Training & Education Group. Training Schools that are members of the BFA have met the standards of excellence needed to become a BFA recognised training provider. They run endorsed courses that would benefit a range of students.
