 CAREER CHANGE

There comes a point in everyone’s life when a change of career seems on the cards. Whether you’ve come to that point through choice or circumstance, we know you’ll be asking yourself that “could I really change careers?” question. What’s more, we’re just as certain it’s a question which usually throws up more questions than it answers.

So, our career change segment responds to that with ideas and advice on how to approach your own career change prospects, with your best professional foot forward.

Short of relevant experience? We’ll give you ideas for gaining it.
Feeling under-qualified? We can signpost you towards relevant courses and training.
Need reassurance and ideas? We’ll direct you towards additional resources to help support your ideas and give you the confidence you need to build your new career.

  VOCATIONAL COURSES

Vocational courses offer one of the best ways to retrain for a new career. Vocational courses include a high level of practical, experiential learning which can be incorporated into actual work or work experience. This affords you the opportunity to learn whilst you earn, and make your new career pay more quickly.

Vocational courses often offer the chance to build on those transferable skills you already have, especially if you’re coming into event management from a different industry sector or an alternative career path.

Our vocational courses include key aspects of event management expertise which will help build on your existing skills and further develop them in the event management context, making you work-ready for your new career in ways which will not only develop your confidence, but also help you develop a complete portfolio of evidence of your event management expertise.

Professional Development

The events industry is one which just doesn’t stand still. As new technologies and innovations trend at global as well as national levels of interest, new venues and methods of delivery and feedback are explored, so new aspects are introduced and incorporated into events.

These trends not only affect how events are run and what they include, but they also have a significant impact on what clients expect when they appoint you to plan their next, best event. To stay fit for the challenge, continuing your professional development is a must.

Event Academy continues to include the latest trends and innovations across all aspects of the events industry across our website and throughout our courses. What’s more, being a student with us, even for CPD, brings the opportunity to access our vast network of contacts and volunteering opportunities – a perfect way to broaden your events skills and networks at the same time.
