    SOME FINER DETAILS

    It is a fact that you learn more from a Tutor-led, home study wedding planning course, than you would from a classroom based program where you compete for your tutor's attention with a dozen other students with random abilities and skill sets.

    • We offer unlimited*, exclusive 1-to-1 access to your own Tutor with at least 10 years experience (*within reason!).
    • Our professional and personable Tutors provide high quality guidance, support and detailed feedback throughout the training.
    • Our home study / online / distance learning courses enable you to study at home, in your own time and at your own pace.
    • Instant communication with your Tutor available via Live Chat, Skype/Zoom or telephone.
    • The First Class Course is benchmarked at Level 4 on the UK Government Ofqual qualification framework
    • The Advanced Course is benchmarked at Level 3 on the UK Government Ofqual qualification framework
    • The Short-Course is benchmarked at Level 2 on the UK Government Ofqual qualification framework
