One of the most important parts of learning is the ability to apply what you have learned. Consolidation of each unit is vital and we do this by using unit projects and assignments. There are no tests or exams in what we do at the Academy instead we use real life scenarios from professionals event designers to allow you to demonstrate the knowledge you have gained in a practical way.

Your course will include 5 assignments, which will lead you through every stage of designing an event covering all elements from understanding the principles of design to applying color, special effects, lighting, floral design, centerpieces and decor to an event. You will be expected to treat your tutor as your client and the assignment you submit as your proposal.

Assignments are submitted through our virtual campus to your tutor who will grade them and return them via the campus with full feedback and examples to show you areas for improvement. In most cases the tutors will also provide you with a case study of how they themselves would have approached that assignment.

One of the many benefits of the Academy, and what helps to set our courses apart from all the others out there, is the in depth feedback and monitoring you receive from your tutor.
