Centre for Events Professional Development

Programmes and courses specifically designed for the events industry

  • Do you work in the events industry?
  • Are you looking to progress your career with internationally recognised qualifications?
  • Are you looking to develop your staff using innovative and creative work based learning solutions that are developed specifically to address your corporate requirements?

The Centre for Events Professional Development brings together a range of programmes and short courses which are specifically designed for the events industry.

Our open programmes are available at different levels and lengths to suit you wherever you are in your professional development.

From crowd management and event safety through to acoustics and AV technology, management, business and marketing, you can build a portfolio of qualifications that are internationally recognised and transferable.

Learning at work for events professionals

All of our training solutions are work-based which means you don't need to take too much time out to attend classes - you'll study at occasional workshops and online. Key to this is that all learning is based on your workplace, which means that everything learnt is directly relevant and is applied straight away for visible and immediate impact.

Degrees

We can work with you to design a bespoke training programme that specifically meets your business requirements. We've already developed successful programmes with a number of partners, including Showsec, Chatsworth and Southwater Events Group.

The events industry offers such a diverse range of opportunities, so the development of new programmes and short courses which bring together a blend of rigorous academia and real-world experience is great news for everyone in the sector.
