About the course
This qualification will introduce you to the skills that are required to plan, organise and evaluate events by developing your knowledge and understanding. Areas covered include marketing methods and resources, market research, human resources, communication and customer service relevant to events.
All students will be required to attend an initial induction session at the start of the course and you will be allocated a designated tutor who will support you through your qualification. The induction is designed to give the learner the best possible start and due to the funding process for these courses you will have to complete some enrolment forms and complete an initial screening for Maths and English. The induction is an integral part of the course and can take up to 2 hours.
