Manchester, UK: Event Academy is pleased to announce the launch of the Live Foundation Certificate in Event Management course in Manchester in October 2018.
This Live Foundation course takes place over an intensive 5-days and teaches industry knowledge and experience in the practice of professional event management. The Manchester Course Director is Josef Jammerbund, former Head of Events at the British Fashion Council. Throughout this course he leads a team of professionals to deliver 5 days of industry insights, venue visits and practical project work.
The intensive nature of this course means it can easily fit into a week’s annual leave, so career changers can find out more about event management without giving up the day job. Meanwhile, those looking for a way into this highly competitive industry find this level 3 course offers hands-on project experience and a network of contacts for getting started. The course is also a useful stepping stone onto further events experience or education.
Why Manchester? The events industry is worth billions of pounds to the UK economy, and Manchester in particular is a real hub for events, event professionals and new talent in the events industry.
