Siobhan Craven-Robins, wedding industry leader and influencer, now spends some of her time lecturing for The Event School London, hosting various masterclasses and her CPD approved 5-day Certificate in Wedding Planning.
‘The course and masterclasses have adapted well as online courses which has meant I have been able to continue with my teaching during the pandemic.
We have welcomed even more international students on to the courses as a result of the courses switching to online - students who would otherwise have found the travel, either internationally or nationally, negated their option of booking a course at our base in London. Similarly, the flexible day and time slots have also proved helpful.
With all the technology available to us now, we have been fortunate to still be able to offer guest speakers and show rounds as part of some of the courses. Interaction is so important and so we still limit the number on the courses to ensure the students get the same value and experience.
An upside to completing a course during this time and changing direction is that students have had the time to get the groundwork done for setting up a business.
All that said, I can’t wait to get back to face to face interaction in the real world!’
