Designed for students and apprentices working towards level two qualifications (level five in Scotland), this module is about plant materials. Learning to value and respect the product you work with makes it easier to remember everything you need to know from binomial names to conditioning methods.
This module will help you to identify sixteen different types of cut flower and foliage. It will also provide you with the necessary skills to assess the quality and condition of all incoming cut materials. In addition, the module will explore conditioning, the method used by florists to prepare and hydrate their products for use. These skills will help you avoid wasting your product, which will protect your wages and the environment.
The module takes two hours to complete. After you have worked through the learning, you need to successfully answer a series of multiple-choice questions before being awarded a downloadable WorldSkills UK certificate.
In this technical masterclass, you will learn to:
explain botanical names and the benefits of using them
apply the binomial naming system
identify a variety of different plant materials on sight
state the conditioning methods for a range of plant materials.
