Event Planning and Management

Course Details

This training course runs over two days and will provide participants with an opportunity to developing their knowledge and understanding of how plan, manage, deliver and evaluate an event.

The course provides the knowledge required to create a meaningful and engaging event experience. Intended to provide participants with the opportunity to develop practical skills and knowledge essential for effective event management, the sessions involve practical project based learning based on real or simulated events. The training takes an interactive approach and will best suit participants who want to develop practical event planning skills whilst gaining accreditation for a real work/volunteer based event. (Please note the accreditation is optional and if selected requires a work based project– not simulated event.)

This course will enable you to…

  • Be able to establish the purpose and shared vision of events.
  • Be able to plan community events with the community, stakeholders and partners.
  • Understand the legal responsibilities of event management.
  • Be able to publicise an event.
  • Be able to evaluate community events with the community, stakeholders and partners.

The accreditation is optional

Learners will be provided with face to face guidance and support during the training sessions and distance tutoring support whilst project assignments are developed. The course requires participants to plan, manage, market and evaluate a real event and to reflect on their own individual practice. Hence to gain the accreditation participants need to work/volunteer on a real event.
