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. Here are a few other notable facts and figures for you.

  • 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 online and 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 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

Students enrolling on our First Class course also benefit from our complimentary 6 Months Graduate Mentoring program, worth £600.00! And students enrolling on either of our two Advanced courses receive a FREE professional wedding planning contract worth £300.00! This is the contract you will use when you start booking clients. PLEASE NOTE: these offers may be withdrawn when V11 launches.
