Secure Longer Industry Work Placements

EA students have been coming to The Department for nearly 10 years now and without fail they have been of the highest calibre...confident, creative and ready to go from day 1. It is a real partnership between us

Jonny Grant, Creative Director at The Department

We love working with Event Academy students because they not only have a strong understanding of events, but also a great attitude and a willingness to learn

Sue Courtney, People & Culture Director at Limelight Sports

As always the Event Academy delivered well above average capability students, at Vision Nine Entertainment Group now we know that Event Academy students are so capable we won't be looking elsewhere for placements in '22. In fact Mia (an ex student who is now employed) will most probably be managing them!
