AIM supports the growth in the end-point assessment (EPA) of apprenticeship standards, delivery of high-quality EPA, working in partnership with major employers across sectors. We are currently focusing our work on the creative and cultural industries. We are seeking to recruit talented and motivated assessors across a range of standards in the creative sector, including Event Assistant.
Event Assistant is an entry level position, typically working within a team of people in an events company or within the events department of a larger organisation. The role would usually provide support to a number of Event Planners or Project Managers by carrying out a diverse range of tasks necessary to plan, organise and deliver an event: for example, searching for the right location and venue for the event; working with the design team on the look and feel of the event; or organising logistics such as transportation and catering.
Project: A 2000 - 5000 work- based project or practical case study carried out by the apprentice during the last 3 months of the apprenticeship and after the apprentice has met the Gateway criteria. The completed Project is signed off by the employer and marked by our assessor.
Portfolio of evidence contains evidence from real work activity by the apprentice that has been built up progressively through the apprenticeship. The intention is that it will complement the Project and enable the apprentice to demonstrate those areas of knowledge, skill and behaviours that may not have naturally occurred in their Project.
Professional discussion: A 45-minute discussion with our assessor and a representative from the apprentice's employer, that enables the apprentice to talk about their apprenticeship as a whole and their delivery of the Project.
More information on this standard can be found on the AIM website
