Our award-winning team of highly qualified and experienced tutors have the expertise to take you on the ultimate floristry journey from a novice to a British Master. You can dive straight into one of our Level 2 courses which are all suitable for beginners or you can try out one of our floristry Tasters or Workshops. To progress to a higher level you can sign up to our advanced Level 3 courses and then ultimately onto the stimulating City & Guilds Levels 4 and 5 courses.

Our courses are super flexible so that you can fit them into your busy life. You can also sign up as finances allow and can build the qualification over a time period that suit you.

We give you the chance to take part in real life, exclusive, floristry events and prestigious competitions both during and after your time with us. We help you to expand your professional floristry experience, develop your personal design skills and put your floristry training into practice.

Welcome to the Academy family!

A little bit about us 

The Academy was founded in Devon in 2008 by friends and fellow Master Florists, Julie Collins and Tina Parkes. Together they have developed an exceptional programme of flexible modular floristry and flower arranging courses for every stage of a flower-lover’s journey, from hobbyist, absolute beginner, career changer or experienced florist.  

Wave goodbye to coursework and homework as all Academy courses are taught in the European style – hands-on, practical, jam-packed, full of techniques, and inspiration.
