How are your courses offered?
All our courses are offered through our interactive E Learning Virtual Campus. This allows us to use tools such as online chat, podcasts, video tutorials to give the illusion of being in a classroom, but all from the comfort of your armchair. In a world where everyone is time poor this flexible method of delivery allows you to study in your own time at your own pace.
Do we have tutors and how do we contact them?
Yes each student has a tutor which is allocated to them upon enrolment. This tutor will work with you throughout your course and be there to help you every step of the way by keeping you motivated, answering your queries and giving you an insight into the world of weddings and events from a professional point of view. They can be contacted through our office number, through the virtual campus or via email.
Are the tutors from within the industry?
Yes. All our tutors have had a minimum of 3 years experience within the wedding and event industry and although the academy itself is dedicated to training and delivering educational courses many of the tutors still run their own wedding planning business so can give you a very real picture of how things work in this industry.
Is the course accredited?
Please see our Accreditation Page for more details
How long does one of your courses take?
Our courses are self-paced. This means that you can study them with the time you have available. We find that this approach enables people with busy schedules to still commit to study. Generally we find that someone who is working full-time and studying our Certificate course part-time will complete it within 6-9 months. If you choose to study the Diploma course part-time it should take between 9-12 months and the Advanced Diploma 12-18 months. However these are just guidelines. All our courses must be completed within two years, apart from the Advanced Diploma which has a timeframe of three years. Any student not completing within this timeframe can apply for an extension which incurs a small fee of £75.
Many Academy students like to work at their own pace at a time and place that suits them. However, there are also many students who have a set time period that is much shorter with a goal of launching their business within the next 4-6 months. This type of study requires more structure and guidance from our tutors, which is why we have launched our Fast Track Flexible Study Program.
To enrol on the Fast Track Flexible Study Program all you need to do is click the Fast Track option on the enrolment form, and we will do the rest. To choose your Course and enrol click here. Alternatively if you want to find out more about how Fast Track can work for you speak to our Course Consultant, Zoe McKeown, on 0845 313 6023
Our courses are at Certificate and Diploma Level and are the equivalent of NVQ Level 3 & 4. The Academy is an approved NCFE Training Centre and ALL our courses are accredited through NCFE who are a recognised awarding organisation.
Each month we put one of our students in the spotlight and feature their work and their achievements. We ask them questions to help give you an insight into life at the Academy
