6 reviews for HPTU1015 – Event Management to Business Pathway

  1. Stephen Neal

    Enjoyed the flexibility to work at my own pace – Improvement would be faster feedback on assignment submissions

  2. Pamela Mitchell

    Haven’t started yet

  3. Natalie Winter

    Easy repayments and no student load required. I also could do it in my own time and not feel pressured having to attend a class each week when working full time and having children.

  4. Sonia Waara

    Good course!

  5. Tala Morgana Clifton

    Pretty cool and straightforward, will definitely keep doing the course. Received the paperwork folder and it’s been really helpful.

  6. Mandi Timms

    I have chosen to study Event Management as I would like to be able to plan pop-up events, festivals and other corporate events like conferences and trade shows. The assignments and projects are great as I am able to apply what I am learning to ‘real life’ event briefs. Sometimes I forget I am not working on a real event, they are so realistic.

ILEA Feedback for The Career Academy

“At ILEA we’re constantly looking to encourage the very best talent to enter the events industry and for our community to keep that talent rewarded and incentivised. Event management isn’t an instinct, it’s a skill that needs to be learnt and understood, and then continually improved upon. The Career Academy is an excellent first step on this process.


There continues to be a debate in the UK and beyond our shores on the benefits between experience and academic learning, for me they need to be picked up in unison. We, as an industry, take on the responsibility of delegate and spectator wellbeing, while we have them in our care; we need to take this seriously and ensure our people have the correct and rigorous training and education.”

Alistair Turner, Past President, ILEA UK Chapter
