A beautiful future

Imagine a working life where you are surrounded by flowers every day, you are paid to be creative, you get to work with amazing colours, fragrances and textures and you know that your work makes people happy. Could a career as a florist be for you?

In Sydney TAFE’s floristry courses you’ll develop skills and knowledge by contributing to real projects and events. You’ll learn how to design and construct beautiful floristry products and gain retail skills in our on-site retail florist shop and purpose-built classrooms.  

Sydney TAFE and your floristry career

Sydney TAFE gives you the advantage whatever the stage of your career.

  • Leaving school? Our programs and support services will teach you workplace practices, attitudes and the foundation skills to launch your great career.
  • Launching your career? Our courses can take you from a floristry assistant right through to owning your own business.
  • Time for a change? Sydney TAFE offers you the chance to relaunch your career or build on your existing skill-set.

Flexible and fast-track options

Sydney TAFE can recognise your knowledge and life/work experience so you finish your qualification faster.

If you are already working in the industry and want to build on your career, you can apply for recognition of prior learning (RPL) so you don’t have to study what you already know.

Sydney TAFE is always developing innovative ways to deliver its courses, including day and evening options.

A real alternative

Floristry student Brittany Henderson says she didn’t want to spend three years studying at university because she wasn’t sure what she wanted to do with her life. Looking for alternatives, she found Sydney TAFE and decided on floristry as a potential career path.

“I’ve always been an arty kind of person and I was looking for something different,” Brittany says.

Now doing her second floristry course, she plans to travel overseas and wants to use her floristry skills as she works her way around Europe.
