Application

This unit describes the performance outcomes, skills and knowledge required to research and critically evaluate global floristry design trends and practice at a strategic level, and to use that research as a way of extending expertise in floristry design and construction.

This unit applies to all floristry industry businesses including retail floristry shops, and studio floristry businesses and those that specialise in corporate or special events. It applies to senior and specialist floral designers and floral stylists who work with significant autonomy, have considerable experience across product categories and have a strategic design focus as part of their job role.

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