Why Study Event Management?

Times have changed, and the appeal of material goods is waning.  These days, people are far more likely to spend their money on experiences than traditional products.  The result of which is a booming global events industry, generating incalculable sums for small and large event management organisations alike.  From sophisticated corporate functions to lavish birthday parties to the most enormous music festivals, event managers are the often-invisible architects that make the impossible a reality.  A highly-prized and sought-after skills-set, career opportunities for those who excel in event management have never looked better. It’s simply a case of taking that all important first-step - our exclusive Level 5 Event Management Diploma has you and your future career covered!

Oxford Home Study Centre is proud to offer an extensive range of premium online study programs, with no deadlines imposed and no entry-requirements to fulfil.  This fascinating Level 5 Event Planning Coursetakes place over a series of nine units as follows:

Unit 1. Event Planning and Management: An Introduction

The course begins by providing learners with a detailed introduction to the project management profession, examining the various roles and responsibilities of those who work in event planning.  The importance of anticipating and meeting clients’ expectations are also discussed, along with the growing demand for event management services worldwide.

Unit 2. Event Types

Unit 2 then turns attention to the various different types of events a professional may be hired to plan and oversee.  Examples of which include major and minor public events, business events, personal events and social events, along with the unique requirements and challenges associated with each event type.

Unit 3. Process of Event Planning

An introduction to the complexities of the event planning process follows in the third unit, which details the most important considerations at the initial planning stage.  Candidates are familiarised with the criticality of accurate and thorough planning, in accordance with the requirements and expectations of the client.

Unit 4. How to Create an Event Management Plan

Unit 4 details the components of the single most important document in professional event planning.  Candidates learn how to produce and work with an effective event management plan, which details information such as scheduling, staffing requirements, communication strategies, contractors and service providers, fire safety, contingency management and more.

Unit 5. Event Planning: Step-by-Step

In the fifth unit, a detailed step-by-step breakdown of the event planning process is examined.  Each of the four main stages in the event planning process is discussed – planning & execution, monitoring, controlling and closing - along with the potential consequences that may arise due to inefficiencies or inconsistencies along the way.

Unit 6. Customer Service as a Marketing Strategy                 

Course unit 6 details how the single most important element in an effective marketing strategy is the provision of superior customer service.  Candidates learn how to identify and prioritise marketing objectives, implement a wide variety of marketing techniques and produce a professional marketing plan.  The importance of identifying and meeting the expectations of the target audience is also explored.                            

Unit 7. What is Contingency Plan?
