HND Events Management is designed to give you knowledge and experience in the organisation of events. This course will help you to develop the range of skills you need in this dynamic industry. You’ll cover an exciting selection of areas including sporting, cultural, music and business events.

There’s a strong emphasis on teamwork and you’ll be expected to plan and organise an event as part of the course - excellent practical experience. The course is ideal if you’re planning to pursue a career in the events industry, either working as a member of an events team, or even running your own business, for example as a wedding planner or events manager. The course will also make sure you’re well prepared for a range of degree courses in events management.

There will be opportunities for you to participate in a programme of visits to hotels and other businesses operating within the events industry, for example Our Dynamic Earth, to give you further insight into the industry.
