Last week Collyer’s BTEC Business Level 3 students got a unique insight into the world of events management, at the Brighton Centre.
Collyer’s Business Studies teacher, Claire Savage explained: “As part of the new BTEC specification, the students need to run a live event, so it’s obviously important we explore a top venue and learn from some of the leading professionals in this field.
“The Brighton Centre’s event management team have been brilliant, taking a huge amount of time out to talk us through their processes and show off their cutting-edge facilities.”
The Brighton Centre is one of the largest conference and exhibition centres in the country and regularly hosts political party conferences as well as live music and entertainment from the world’s leading artists.
Jon Morray-Jones, who is an Event Officer at the Brighton Centre, said: “It was great to meet the Collyer’s staff and students. I hope they found the visit useful and informative!”
Collyer’s Deputy Principal, Steve Martell was delighted: “Massive thanks to the wonderful team at the Brighton Centre for their incredible hospitality. They are an elite organisation who demonstratively care about helping the next generation in their future careers.”
Teacher of Business Studies with responsibility for BTEC Levels 2 and 3 at Collyer’s, Ivan Morgan, added: “It was a really informative visit and will be a great benefit to our students in their ‘Managing an Event’ unit. We really appreciate the team at the Brighton Centre giving up their time and answering all of our questions in detail.”
