We believe in preparing our students for the real world, an event industry that is constantly changing and evolving. Our aim is for every student to be ‘work ready’ by the end of their course – ready to go, able to progress, able to be useful to their employer from day one.
Sadly, our experience is that most event management courses fail to equip students with the practical skills, knowledge, and confidence needed to enter the workplace. They fail to provide the practical knowledge that is needed and students, therefore, leave unable to show an employer that they can ‘do the job’. This is critical when trying to break into the industry or even if you are looking to progress in your current role.
Our online courses have a balanced mix of film-based training, 1-2-1 tutorials, and global group projects. Our Course Director is always on hand to offer practical advice whenever needed, giving you the confidence to get out there and create a meaningful career.
