The industry
If you are artistic, have a love of flowers and plants, enjoy meeting people and want a career where you have variety in your work, then Floristry is for you. Event decoration, contract work, function decorating and exhibition design all require the skills of a florist, so there are a host of employment opportunities as either an employee or to start up your own floristry business.

At Capel Manor we pride ourselves in training people to become commercial florists and to have the ability of constructing a vast range of floral designs to suit all customer specifications. Many of our courses include both in house training and opportunities of work experience within a florist retail outlet to ensure all aspects of the florist industry are covered. In addition, the art of balloon décor is taught as a specialist course in its own right, to further extend décor skills to maximise employment and business opportunities.

Is it for me?
Yes, if you have excellent customer service skills; you are commercially minded; you have a passion for flowers and plants; and you have creative flair.

Capel Manor’s school of floristry has been in the unique position of being the only nationally accredited Centre of Vocational Excellence for Floristry and Business Enterprise, and has been awarded Grade 1 status from Ofsted in three recent inspections. Our courses are ideal for career changers, aspiring florists/ balloon artists or those planning to set themselves up in business.
