Placements

My placement was amazing…I worked in The Household Division and planned the Queen’s 90th birthday celebrations…an amazing feeling to be advising Prince William and Kate in my office!

We believe in creating work ready students - the placement is an essential part of this training.

As part of our Postgraduate and Degree Alternative courses, our students experience a three month work placement within an events agency, venue or company of their choosing.

For The Event Academy, a student’s placement is a chance to not only apply the knowledge, skills and confidence that they have been taught but also to demonstrate this value to a prospective employer – a unique opportunity.

Our sister company, The Event Talent Agency, consults with each student to understand the sectors that they are most interested in to offer each student a range of options. The Event Talent Agency has a network of over 500 top UK companies who trust them to find the best people which means we hear about the most exciting roles with industry recognised companies first – here are some current examples:
