Course summary

Why Events Management? Events Management is a fast paced and dynamic industry, no one day is the same, you’ll have opportunities to travel the world, work with interesting people and continuously challenge yourself. With us you’ll learn the skills required through practical hands-on application and the academic know how required to succeed in a competitive market. A good Events Manager? Good communication, creativity, being organised, problem solving and constantly striving for excellence are a few of the skills required, we encourage you to explore all types of events from Weddings to Conferences, Sporting events to Cultural Celebrations, Charity fundraisers to marketing campaigns. As members of the Association of British Professional Conference Organisers (APBCO) (http://www.abpco.org/), the Meeting Professional Institute (MPI) (https://www.mpiweb.org/), the National Outdoor Events Association (NOAE) (https://noea.org.uk/) and the Association for Events Management Education (AEME) (http://www.aeme.org/), the course follows the requirements of the Industry. How will you learn? You will learn through practical application and creatively delivered lectures, workshops, seminars and group work sessions. * Coordinating your own event as part of assessment in each year. * Working with charities and external clients to create events concepts. * Volunteering on events throughout the year (e.g. NCRI in Liverpool, CHS in Leeds, Chester Food & Culture Festival). * Industry software training and creating event design concepts, operating the technology and equipment behind events. * Attending field trips. * Complete additional qualifications embedded in the modules such as Food Hygiene Certificate, IOSH Managing Safely and CVENT Certificate and have the opportunity to complete additional qualifications such as Personal Licence Holders (RFQ). * Future focused subjects delivered by lecturers who have worked in the industry or who are currently conducting cutting edge research in the field. * Industry experts delivering guest lectures. What subjects will you cover? You’ll explore subjects such as operations and project management, financial planning and budgeting, Health & Safety, risk mitigation, marketing and consumer behaviour, logistics, facilities and sponsorship management, evaluation and impact measurement and business management. Events Management is an exciting career prospect for someone that likes a challenge, works to deadlines, and is good at problem solving. Your confidence in these skill sets will grow year on year throughout the course through the model of learning, critical thinking and practical application that our course is designed around. The industry itself is diverse, dynamic and international offering exciting opportunities to our placement students and graduates. One of the huge leaps between studying at School/College to studying a degree at University is the level of independent learning required, you will fill your time with reading, research and seeking experiences that will help you understand the subjects taught in the class. My main piece of advice would be to pick a subject that you are going to find interesting, that is going to excite you and keep you inspired to learn for your 4 years at University and continually develop as a young professional upon graduation. ~ Janna Wood, Senior Lecturer
