Level 3 Extended Diploma in Business, Events and Tourism

“My time at Reaseheath has been extremely enjoyable and thanks to the supportive staff I have been able to gain so many new skills which have led me to be successful in securing a management apprenticeship at Aldi.

“I chose Reaseheath due to its welcoming and unique campus which has lots of wildlife and green spaces. I wanted to study the Level 3 Extended Diploma in Business, Events and Tourism to expand my knowledge and learn something new, and I liked the fact that the course was mainly assignment based allowing me to put my knowledge to the test. The course was varied and has enabled me to explore interesting topics such as the different business sectors and the ways in which an event is planned.

“My favourite units were Travel and Tourism, Exploring Business and Developing a Marketing Campaign. I found the lessons engaging, interactive and the topics were interesting, inspiring me to look at apprenticeships in the retail industry.”
