It has 100% helped me be prepared for future employment. I feel I have the necessary knowledge to apply to a real life job and career.
The advice I would give any student of the academy is; Yes it is hard but it is worth it! When you are feeling demotivated, just attempt to commit to half an hour, the creative juices will soon start flowing!
I absolutely loved doing the assignments! As sad as it may sound, I loved having each assignment where only your imagination is the limit and there were no creative restrictions. Knowing that I could be creative allowed me to push myself more in the assignments to really produce something that was original.”
This course is ideal for anyone with a love of Weddings and of course, planning, organisation and coordination. It is also the ideal course for anyone who would like to work within a Venue as a Wedding Planner or Wedding Venue Coordinator. The principles of Wedding Planning that you will learn in this course can be applied to other 'celebration planning'; Engagements, Hens and Bucks Events, Showers, Christenings, Anniversaries and Birthdays. You will also enjoy this course if you are a Bride who wants to plan her own wedding and it is an ideal ‘starter’ course if you would like to test the waters and find out more about working in weddings, as it can be used as a stepping stone towards higher certifications.
This course does not include our business units and its focus is solely about teaching you how to plan weddings and work with a client and suppliers; this makes it an ideal course for job-seekers. Employment opportunities can be found at Wedding Venues and with established Wedding Planners.
If you feel confident in your knowledge about starting a business, this course is still suitable for you. If you would like to learn more about launching a wedding business, we recommend the Diploma in Wedding Planning Styling & Design
The following courses also contain the Wedding Planning units from this course, which means that you can credit your study from this course, to those higher certifications later: Diploma in Wedding & Event Planning, Diploma in Wedding Planning Styling & Design or the Advanced Diploma in Special Event Planning & Design.
