One of the most important parts of learning is the ability to apply what you have learnt. 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 planners to allow you to demonstrate the knowledge you have gained in a practical way.

Your course will include 4 assignments based on an authentic event brief that will see you planning, managing and running a conference. These assignments will lead you through every stage of planning the event. You will be expected to treat your tutor as your client and the assignment you submit as your proposal. There will also be a short unit project at the end of each unit to allow you to test the knowledge you have learnt in the unit.

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.
