    Course description and aims

    This qualification reflects the role of skilled senior florists who use a range of highly developed floristry skills to design, construct and sell a diverse range of complex floristry products. These individuals have substantial depth of knowledge of construction techniques and floristry design elements and principles.

    They work independently and many florists at this level have supervisory responsibilities to plan, monitor and evaluate the work of team members. Some senior florists take a lead role in coordinating the day-to-day operational and business activities of small floristry businesses.

    This qualification provides a pathway to work as a senior florist in a diversity of floristry industry business types including retail floristry shops, studios and online floristry businesses.

    No occupational licensing, certification or specific legislative requirements apply to this qualification at the time of publication.
