Cornwall College Eden Project LEVEL: 2 Travel & Tourism

Event management is a fast-paced, exciting and diverse industry and in order to thrive you will need to be enthusiastic, energetic and very organised. From weddings and music gigs to exhibitions and sporting events you will get great job satisfaction when you see how successful an event you have been working on has been.

An apprenticeship will allow you to earn money while you are studying. In order to start your apprenticeship in event management you will need to join one of our Level 2 courses and on successful completion you can then progress on to Level 3 and beyond.

During the course you will be inspired by specialist customer service and event management workshops, and develop your own sustainability-based project as well as learning key industry skills such as how to develop publicity materials and work effectively with others.

This apprenticeship takes place on-site at the Eden Project and commences in September. Vacancies will be open for applications in the summer.

Shannon Wilby Eden Events Apprentice Eden Project

Shannon joined the Live Events and Promotions Apprenticeship at the Eden Project
because she wanted to help plan and run a variety of events. During her apprenticeship
Shannon has been involved in Halloween, Christmas and space themed events, weddings,
corporate events, the pasty championships, dog days and much more.

“I love being able to see an event through from start to finish. Taking months to plan
something and making the event the best you can, then seeing everyone’s reactions when it’s
done, always feels like such an amazing achievement. If you are thinking about studying an
apprenticeship at Cornwall College, just go for it, it’s great to get as many qualifications as you
can and the lecturers are so friendly and supportive.”
