Testimonials

Fiona Requadt – Bolton

Give this course a go to broaden your qualifications and knowledge

I personally loved this course because I’m planning my own wedding for 2018 but wanted to know so much more about the topic. I found out so much more than my own personal knowledge and walked away feeling much more confident with small details I would have never even thought about.

I would recommend this course to anyone planning their wedding, or helping a friend plan their wedding or wanting to start their own wedding planning business – each module is so informative that you don’t feel that you haven’t learned all that you need to know to hit the floor running.

There are 24 modules to complete in this course and each module is so helpful and easy to understand, I was not left with one question due to how full of detail and how well presented the module and course is. Definitely give this course a go to broaden your qualifications and knowledge!

Thank you

Amy Stonehouse – Glasgow

Highly recommend – worth every penny :)

I honestly cannot recommend this course highly enough for anyone thinking of pursuing a career in Wedding Planning.

The course was very obviously written by industry professionals. Course content was easy to understand, yet thorough and in depth. I also love that this course covered such a diverse range of topics including weddings from different cultures and religions, not just the standard white-dress chapel wedding.

I really feel as though this course has given me a bounding head start in the wedding planning industry and I can’t wait to get in there and start my own business. Highly recommend – worth every penny :)

Natasha Boreland – Northern Ireland

I loved this course and I’m sad it’s over

This is an absolutely brilliant course, I really enjoyed it and it consists of very detailed information. The test at the end was slightly tricky so it’s important to pay attention to all aspects of the course content.

I would highly recommend this course to anyone thinking of becoming a wedding planner, with an interest in this topic or even to anyone who is getting married as there’s a lot of information which could be found useful and certain things that give you good ideas.

I loved this course and I’m sad it’s over. It was definitely brilliant from start to finish and is great value for money!

Kelly Ford – Lancashire

I can’t wait to start putting my work into action

I have found this course very interesting. Even being a bride myself, you don’t actually realise how much actually goes into planning a wedding. Every little detail goes into the course.

I can’t wait to start putting my work into action – becoming a Wedding Planner and being part of a couple’s day. Helping them plan their most important day of their lives. It’s been interesting learning how other cultures plan and have their weddings, and how many different themes people choose from. Even to the honeymoon.

So many things go into being a wedding planner, it’s not as simple as it seems.

What is a ‘regulated qualification’?

A regulated qualification is delivered by a learning institution which is regulated by a government body. In England, the government body which regulates courses is Ofqual. Ofqual regulated qualifications sit on the Regulated Qualifications Framework (RQF), which can help students understand how different qualifications in different fields compare to each other. The framework also helps students to understand what qualifications they need to progress towards a higher learning goal, such as a university degree or equivalent higher education award.

What is an ‘endorsed’ course?

An endorsed course is a skills based course which has been checked over and approved by an independent awarding body. Endorsed courses are not regulated so do not result in a qualification - however, the student can usually purchase a certificate showing the awarding body’s logo if they wish. Certain awarding bodies - such as ABC Awards and TQUK - have developed endorsement schemes as a way to help students select the best skills based courses for them.
