Event Assistant Apprenticeship Level 3

Duration: 15 months

Whether within a corporate or charity sector context, or working within an events agency, event assistants are a vital support at the heart of organising complex events.

Apprentices gain the knowledge, skills and behaviours they need to competently identify locations and venues, design, specify negotiate and manage services, logistics, technology and marketing.   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.

In 2017, JGA was the first provider to launch event assistant apprenticeship training and since then no apprentice who has remained on programme has ever failed. The vast majority have achieved merit and distinction.

We are delighted that our clients encompass organisations across the public, voluntary and private sectors; and include both corporates and agencies Channel 4, Informa Plc, The National Archives, Southbank Centre, Compass Plc, and agency-side DRP, RPM and Alterniq all trust JGA with many having happily returned for a second or third apprentice/cohort. Apprentices receive exposure to a broad range of cultures and thinking.
