Course Description

The Event and Wedding - Planning & Co-Ordination - QLS Level 4 Course has been specially commissioned from a highly successful and experienced Event Planner to reflect the changing nature of this demanding yet rewarding sector.

This is a course for those who are keen to work at a high level of responsibility, and who have a good level of literacy and a broad educational background. Starting your own business is a brave and exciting decision to make. The home study courses provide a look at the day-to-day reality of running a business and outlines the skills and qualities that you will need. The desire to be your own boss has attracted people from all backgrounds - rich and poor - to take a gamble and start out on their own.

Many opportunities come about due to people being at the right place, at the right time – providing a service or product that enough people need or want to enable them to run a successful business. The Event and Wedding – Planning course can help you do that.

Event Management and Wedding Planning involve the ability to be creative, communicate effectively and run a business all at the same time. Your success will depend on your ability to search out and take advantage of opportunities - but does come with a certain amount of risk attached. We will identify the specific skills that you will need to work in this demanding sector and work with you to develop those skills through the support of our experienced tutors.

On successful completion of this course students will receive a QLS Level 4 Endorsed Certificate of Achievement.

The Event and Wedding - Planning & Co-Ordination - QLS Level 4 Course includes the following units:
In this section you will learn about the legal aspects of setting up a business and the in-and-outs of financing it.
Whilst not the most exciting part of the course, this area is critical to be aware of as ignoring it could land you in heaps of trouble!
These very pertinent issues are part-and-parcel of planning nowadays as more companies and individuals feel the need to play a part in making the planet a better place.
The first of the sections looking at the requirements of specific client groups.
This is the real nuts-and bolts sections dealing with what you need to do at a basic organising level.
Large scale events pose their own set of difficulties and challenges, and this section highlights some of these and how they might be dealt with.
Corporate clients will want you to help them plan for their specific company-driven objectives, and this section will give you an idea of how to balance your own vision with that of your corporate client.
It’s no good organising an event in detail if you don’t ensure that it rolls out as it’s meant to on the day. The main aspects of co-ordination are brought to the fore here.
As with Corporate clients, companies will expect you to help them achieve their targets so you will have to immerse yourself in their ‘culture’ if you want to understand this whilst, of course, maintaining your own standards and individuality.
Whether it’s a VIP visit or an Official Opening, these types of events pose their own challenges.
It’s no good organising an event if the venue is inappropriate! Guidance here as to how this might be avoided.
The very personal and specific events around weddings are dealt with in this section.
Get your business known by taking into account the advice given in this comprehensive section.
This is where all you have learnt comes together! Two case studies are provided for you to work through and submit to your tutor for your final assignment.
Prerequisites

As this is a Level 4 course, we will expect applicants to have evidence of successful study or relevant experience at Level 3 or equivalent. A good level of literacy is also a requirement if the extended assignment work is to be completed successfully.

Course Duration & Online Support

You can start this course at any time, and you would be registered for a one-year period. You also have access to a personal tutor who can be contacted by email. Your tutor is available to assist with any queries and to mark your assignments for the Awarding Body.

As the course is self-study, you can complete it as quickly as you like. Support extensions are available if students do not complete the course within the one-year period.

Assessment

You will be assessed on TMAs (Tutor Marked Assignments). Most TMAs consists of short paragraph answers, although some TMAs may have a specific word count. The main criteria to pass as assignment is to prove to the tutor that you have fully understood the question and have answered it sufficiently.

If the assignment is not of the required level or needs an amendment it will be detailed in your tutor feedback so you can make any required changes. The course tutor will be happy to give guidance as to how you might improve you answers. Your work can be sent back to your course tutor by email or by post.

QLS Endorsed Certification

At the end of this course, successful learners will receive a QLS Level 4 Endorsed Certificate of Achievement from the Quality Licence Scheme and a Learner Unit Summary (which lists the components the learner has completed as part of the course).

The Quality Licence Scheme is part of the Skills and Education Group, a charitable organisation that unites education and skills-orientated organisations that share similar values and objectives. With more than 100 years of collective experience, the Skills and Education Group’s strategic partnerships create opportunities to inform, influence and represent the wider education and skills sector.

The Skills and Education Group also includes two nationally recognised awarding organisations; Skills and Education Group Awards and Skills and Education Group Access. Through our awarding organisations we have developed a reputation for providing high-quality qualifications and assessments for the education and skills sector. We are committed to helping employers, organisations and learners cultivate the relevant skills for learning, skills for employment, and skills for life.

Our knowledge and experience of working within the awarding sector enables us to work with training providers, through the Quality Licence Scheme, to help them develop high-quality courses and/or training programmes for the non-regulated market.

The course has been endorsed under the Quality Licence Scheme. This means that Kendal Publishing has undergone an external quality check to ensure that the organisation and the courses it offers, meet defined quality criteria. The completion of this course alone does not lead to a regulated qualification* but may be used as evidence of knowledge and skills gained. The Learner Unit Summary may be used as evidence towards Recognition of Prior Learning if you wish to progress your studies in this subject. To this end the learning outcomes of the course have been benchmarked at Level 4 against level descriptors published by Ofqual, to indicate the depth of study and level of demand/complexity involved in successful completion by the learner. 

The course itself has been designed by Kendal Publishing to meet specific learners’ and/or employers’ requirements which cannot be satisfied through current regulated qualifications. The Quality Licence Scheme endorsement involves robust and rigorous quality audits by external auditors to ensure quality is continually met. A review of courses is carried out as part of the endorsement process.

You can find more information on level descriptors from our Certification Overview Page.

*Regulated qualification refers to those qualifications that are regulated by Ofqual / CCEA / Qualification Wales
