Your Degree Alternative will culminate in a work placement with an events company or agency of your choice. This is a guided process from start to finish.
Your work placement is an incredible opportunity to apply all the skills and knowledge you have learned in the classroom and demonstrate your value to a prospective employer. It gives you real-life working experience as an event manager to add to your CV as well as helping you to better understand where you see yourself going in the event industry.
We help you to prepare your CV, teach you how to do your very best at the interview and advise you on the type of placement company we believe will suit you best. Through a series of one-to-one meetings, we match you to the perfect opportunity to suit you and your ambitions in the industry. We keep in close contact with you throughout the whole process.
Throughout your course you will also be able to take advantage of the many volunteering opportunities exclusively available to Event Academy students.
We also provide a comprehensive mentoring programme including
- 3 x 1 hour meetings, either in person or via skype
- 2 x 15 minute phone calls
- Personal performance reviews
- Setting targets
- Personal guidance through the project phase
You’ll graduate into our alumni network, comprising over 2,000 fellow event professionals, movers and shakers in the industry globally.
