How Do Placements & Volunteering Work?

Last updated August 9th, 2019

Volunteering & placements are two of the main reasons we stand out from other event management courses – but why are they so important?

We believe that event management is a subject that you learn best by actually doing the job.

So whether it’s during your course when you are out and about on site visits or pitching to clients, we want you to have the practical skills to hit the ground running when you land a job.

That’s why we also ensure that we provide plenty of opportunities for all students to get experience of the real events world with volunteering and work placements.

Here’s a little more information on how they work…

Volunteering is a brilliant way to enhance your CV, get experience within the industry, try out different sectors plus you will undoubtedly make connections that can lead to work in the future.

Volunteering is available for all our alumni and students (doesn’t matter which course you do) both during your course and for up to three months after your course finishes.

The BRIT Awards

We are super lucky at Event Academy to have some AMAZING opportunities because we are trusted by these events to provide students who know what they are doing.

But there are so many more including LGBT Awards, Wilderness Festival, London Marathon, BAFTAs, Vault Festival, British Heart Foundation, Fashion Scout (London Fashion Week), Move It, Wired Health, Country Living Spring Fair, adidas City Run, National Geographic Traveller Exhibition, Chelsea In Bloom, Moonwalk, British Summer Time Festival & The Un-Wedding Wedding Show…the list goes on and on!

Another key reason why our Event Management courses are different to all our competitors is that we have a sister company, The Event Talent Agency, who specialises in recruitment.

This means that if you are considering the Postgraduate (studying in London) or Degree Alternative courses then The Event Talent Agency will arrange a 3-month placement for every student.

The Event Talent Agency has unrivalled connections across the industry and is essential part of our Postgraduate & Degree Alternative courses.

Placements provide a great opportunity for you to work within a company and get a more extended experience of the events industry.

This is not only an opportunity to practice everything you’ve learnt throughout the course but also a chance to prove your value to a prospective employer.

Over 92% of all our alumni from the Postgrad & DA courses are in full-time work within 6 months of completing their courses.

Many of our previous students have since been offered full-time jobs that they would have never imagined before signing up to The Event Academy.

The Event Talent Agency  will spend 1-to-1 time with you to understand your hopes, dreams and ambitions.

They will then source options for you to consider that will fit with your skillset.

Their network includes over 500 top UK companies including Virgin Sports, Fortnum & Mason, Hilton Hotels, Net Jets, M&C Saatchi and The Department.

We are in a unique position to place students in high profile companies because these companies trust us to have students who really know their stuff and can hit the ground running, ready for work!
