Level 3 Events Assistant
This apprenticeship will typically last 24 months.
The event assistant will develop their skills within event planning and progress to the level of independence required to carry out their own project, for their end point assessment. This will consist of delivering a project from initiation through to evaluation. They will then write between 2500-5000 words and deliver a presentation on their assessment day.
Alongside this, they engage with online sessions to further support their development – and work with their assigned tutor to build a portfolio of work-based evidence, and prepare for their end point project and professional discussion.
Working with Access Creative has helped to enhance our business. Their onboarding process was super thorough, giving us all the information and assistance we needed. The team didn’t just offer advice; they provided us with expert insights to help us make the right choices. It’s clear they’re committed to giving apprentices top-notch training whilst being super supportive to us companies.
