Event Assistant Apprenticeship Level 3

Duration: 15 months

After tough few years with covid-related issues, the events industry is on the way back. The event assistant apprenticeship, combining elements of marketing, communications, project management, logistics, sustainability and more, is often the first stop for new entrants or upgrading the skills of existing junior staff.

The course is designed to work across the sector. Our apprentices from Alzheimer’s Society, Create Communities (Data Science Festival), N. Northamptonshire Council and the NHS were recently photographed at the Event Production Show.

As well as knowledge apprentices gain the skills and behaviours they need. They develop great internal and external communication skills, generate ideas, work within a team, are competent, respectful and above all adaptable to the needs of each project.

Our event assistant apprentices outperform. Last year’s official achievement rate was 12% better than the average of other providers.
