We have a wonderful team here at NZAWEP and it is this team that make our Academy the leading training organisation in the special events industry. We are lucky to have two professional tutors who both have their own companies within weddings so are able to offer very relevant advice. We also have our course consultant, marketing team, IT department, senior administration officer, Jeanene, and our fearless leader, Kylie Carlson.

When you enrol with NZAWEP you become part of a larger community of professionals and students all working towards a common goal and we have many partnerships which are exclusive to the Academy and really benefit our students.

Throughout the year we update our course material as different trends emerge and new tools and ideas hit the industry. Things change very quickly and we like to include all the latest changes within our course material as soon as they become available, which using our E Learning software is easy to do and appears immediately for students within their course material without them having to do anything.

We love sharing our knowledge and we do so each week on our blog that features interviews with leading wedding pros, inspiration boards using the latest pantone colours, articles on business, marketing, social media, design and much more. We also attend many industry conferences, workshops and tradeshows around the world where we gather information in the form of videos, podcasts, articles, ebooks etc. and share within the resources section of our online library and these provide a valuable addition to the course materials allowing students to have a more all round education.

As part of our commitment to our students we also travel with our film crew on location to take you behind-the-scenes of the offices, workshop, design studios and warehouses of some of the top wedding and event professionals. They allow us access to the heart of their businesses and share their challenges, successes and stories with us exclusively to help our students in their own quest for success. These videos are conducted by our director, Kylie Carlson, and she travels across the globe from the UK, Australia, America and further sometimes to really get up close and personal with some of the industries best.

You can also check out our Wedding Wednesday videos which are released via our Australian and UK YouTube Channels where you can get an insight into the knowledge base of the rest of our team.
