Want to know what current students say about the course?
Three months into the course, we ask our learners about their experience - to give us an honest 'warts and all' opinion.
Click 'Read more' on any comment to see what they said. Due to a recent computer glitch we lost most of our late 2016 and early 2017 ratings (grr). But over time you will see more of our current learners' views.
I enrolled on the course because I wanted to be well organised and know how to plan events professionally.
I did not make any contact with Blackford Centre, I enrolled online.
I was really impressed by the course material, it exceeded my expectations. I was expecting a few typed notes.
No, this what I have always wanted to study.
I am a beauty consultant / make-up artist - this will help me plan make-up parties effectively and efficiently. Ultimately, I would like to be a wedding planner.
I would encourage them to enrol - the course is amazing.
I am doing well - I have got 3 modules left to complete the course.
To upgrade myself
I greatly liked it
Yes l compared with other courses
Start up my own business
To enrol as soon as possible
Yes it is educative and l like the updates and the encouragement from my tutor as well as the centre they do not easily give up on their students
I am doing well despite the setback at work l am currently deployed outside my station hence problems with my practical assignments
I enrolled on this course because I enjoy planning events and required some guidance in order to perfect my events and because, this course is online it provided me with a great opportunity to attend to the material in my own time at my own pace.
No, it was advertised very well and convinced me immediately to enroll and I was eager to start the course.
I am doing the online course (no hard material) and it is well set out in an orderly fashion. I like the fact that there are exercises at the end of each section which allows me to memorize the section easily. I also like the fact that there are videos on the material, although I did notice that one of the videos are no longer available.
I did, but the fact that I had to attend classes was not very appealing since I have other commitments.
I want to plan and co-ordinate events of all kind as well as obtaining equipment to hire out for events and to create items for such uses. E.g. Design table set-ups including all decor (hand made items).
Go for it!!
Kindly update and add more videos to the course it is very useful to listen to the tips which they provide within the videos.
Very well, the tutor provide useful tips and guidelines in the feedback. Thank you for a great course!
I wanted to learn more about event planning as it would be very useful in my current job but also give me the option of starting a new career if I chose to. I am also on long term sick having treatment for cancer and wanted to keep my brain active!
Not verbally I checked through the course information and decided it met my needs.
well presented and easy to follow, the materials are good and the assignments clear although sometimes it is difficult to cover all aspects of the assignment as there is so much I want to include within the word limit given.
I am at a time in my life when it is difficult to make a decision about the future. I am due back at work in September and I will use what I have learnt there however if I decide that working in education is no longer for me I may well pursue event planning as a career.
I would recommend the course as the content is interesting and would be very relevant for someone in a similar position to myself or thinking of a career change. Even if you just used the course to help you plan your own parties and major events it is very useful. My daughter has just told us she will be getting married next year so I will definitely be using the skills I have learnt to help with the planning!
My tutor,Paulette, has been excellent very supportive and understanding about any difficulties I have while I am completing the course.
Good I think I am trying to maintain a high standard when completing the assignments and I am just about to complete assignment 8.
I enrolled because I had the passion to become an event planner and also because as a entrepreneur, I saw an opportunity to meet the need of the growing busy Ghanaian and multinational corporate entities who are in dying need of serious event planners with international edge to plan their events.
Yes I did and I must say I was pleased with the level of promptness to my queries and the assistant I had from Emma.
Compact and breath taking
Yes, but they were limited and some were very much demanding
I want to be CEO of the biggest and popular event planning company in my country.
I refer them to The Blackford Centre
Well I am doing well in terms of Marks but have lost track of late. But I have currently bounced back. I hope to complete my course by the close of the year.
