INTERNATIONALLY ACCREDITED EVENT MANAGEMENT COURSES
Experience your future
We take our accreditation seriously, because we know employers do the same. As the only event training provider accredited by the Chartered Institute of Marketing, we offer you the global event industry’s most respected qualification, at Postgraduate, Diploma and Certificate level. Our courses are run from University of London, and King’s College London. Our training courses are also CPD accredited and we are endorsed by the Institutes of Hospitality and Entertainment and Arts Management. We are preferred training supplier for ISES.
PRACTICAL LEARNING EXPERIENCE
“Tell me and I forget, show me and I remember, but involve me and I understand” as 4th Century Chinese philosopher, Lao Tze, continues to remind us. Our event training courses are not only highly practical but also deeply experiential. You will be collaborating with fellow students on real projects, volunteering at iconic British events and working in top London venues. These hands on experiences will give you the skills and confidence to build a successful career in events.
GETTING A JOB
We know that employers are looking for people with a proven ability to deliver events, to be useful straight away, to have the confidence to get stuck in. That is why we have partnered with so many organisations, both for work placements and volunteering opportunities, to offer our students as much real experience as possible, over and above their course.
EXPERT LECTURERS AND SPEAKERS
Our lecturers are all leaders in their event fields. They work with Ashdown Academy because they believe in improving the industry and because they enjoy sharing what they know with next generation of event management leaders. They not only deliver all of the theory and information you that you will need in your career, but also their own insights and real experiences of the industry. These gems makes all the difference to the quality of your learning experience.
TRUSTED BY EMPLOYERS, AGENCIES AND THE EVENT INDUSTRY
Ashdown Academy works closely with over 250 companies and agencies across the event spectrum, to give a unique perspective on the industry. We create students with opinions, who feel confident in their abilities, who can work in teams and challenge the status quo…because that is what employers and our industry needs, not just those who know, but those who ‘can do’.
