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 wedding planners to allow you to demonstrate the knowledge you have gained in a practical way.

The Wedding Planning Certification Course includes 4 assignments based on an authentic wedding brief. These assignments will lead you through every stage of planning a wedding. You will be expected to treat your tutor as your bridal client and the assignment you submit as your proposal. There will also be a short unit project at the end of each unit to make sure you have understood the unit and are able to apply it to your work. Effectively you are building yourself a wedding planning portfolio as you make your way through the course, allowing you to hit the ground running upon graduation.

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.
