The programme is taught through theoretical, practical training and simulation. Each lesson will provide you with assessment opportunities as you work to achieve your goals and targets. You will need an active passion for hospitality & event planning and your tutors will encourage you to discuss your own achievements as well as the issues in modern hospitality. Much of your assessment will be online in the form of web logs (blogs) and discussion of key points.

During the course, there will be opportunities to achieve other qualifications in addition to your main BTEC programme. These additional qualifications may include, functional skills, event planning, first aid and customer services.

As part of the study programme the learners will be expected to undertake 160 hours work experience within the Hospitality and Events Industry

This course includes the opportunity to take part in an industry placement in a sector relevant to your qualification and study programme.
