Course introduction

Wedding planning in the UK is big business. The wedding ‘industry’ is worth around £4 billion every year. With the right wedding planner, the happy couple can save thousands on their big day.

As a wedding planner, you can be involved in many aspects of the day and you will be the person a couple will turn to for help and advice. You will need to be organised, creative, and sensitive. There will also be times where your diplomacy skills will be needed!

Being a wedding planner takes knowledge as well as skills, which is why wedding planning courses are a great option.

There are 14 modules to this comprehensive course which will see you skilled and knowledgeable in all aspects of wedding planning;

  • The wedding planning process, including the ceremony and legal paperwork, are all covered in the first modules of the course
  • The diploma looks at venues, themes, and catering for the big day and how to go about ensuring these are within budget
  • Wedding planners will often help with printed materials such as invitations and the etiquette surrounding the wedding gift list
  • As a wedding planner, you may also help with planning the evening celebration and so on

Comprehensive wedding planner courses online also look at the process of setting up your own business, including marketing and selling your wedding planning service.

Why choose wedding planner home study courses?

Studying from home is a flexible option and one that has many benefits. Online courses offer you the opportunity to study when you want and, more importantly, at your own pace. You can also study this course via a paper copy of the course.

If you are considering setting up your own wedding planning business, you will want to be skilled and knowledgeable before you take the plunge. You can study online without giving up your current job.

Many wedding planners go on to study for other qualifications. For example, event management is an obvious progression from wedding planning courses.

Required knowledge

The good news is that no prior learning knowledge or experience is essential to take this Wedding Planner course. This Wedding Planner course is openly available to anyone wishing to learn more about the role of a Wedding Planner and would like to take part in a highly rewarding home study course. You have the freedom to start the Wedding Planner course at any time and continue your studies at your own pace for a period of up to 12 months from initial registration, with full tutor support.

Assessment

Theoretical information is provided throughout the Wedding Planner course, followed by a series of exercises that are to be completed and marked by your personal tutor. Each module within the Wedding Planner course asks you to complete a number of structured questions to ensure that you have the underpinning knowledge required and confirm that learning has taken place.

There are also activities which you are required to complete to show how you have applied your learning directly to work practices, and that you understand how it all fits in with current policies and procedures. Both the structured questions and the activities for each module of the Wedding Planner course must be assessed by your tutor.

FAQs

What does NCC stand for?

NCC originally stood for the National Consortium of FE (Further Education) Colleges. This brought together the FE Colleges to achieve the best provision. Regular national meetings were attended by both Colleges and Government agencies who funded them. This was very helpful to them both to best deliver training to their students.

For more than 25 years NCC has supplied FE Colleges with learning materials as well as student marketing.

NCC now specialise in online training of a very high quality to students both self-funded, paid for by schools, employers and training providers.

What is distance learning?

Distance learning is the most flexible and convenient approach to studying. There is no need for you to attend college and you can study anytime, anyplace, anywhere that fits in with your lifestyle. Distance learning programmes are ideal for people who may have a job, family commitments, or any other commitment that won’t allow them time off to study.

What is the difference between the online and paper versions of courses?

Both our online and paper courses are completed via an online learning portal (LMS) which you can access after you receive your login details by email. Please ensure that you check your junk email if you do not receive your login details within 48 hours.

All learners will submit their assignments, receive feedback and correspond with their tutor directly through the LMS. If you require help from our support team, then simply email [email protected].

If you opt for the online course, you will not receive any course materials through the post. Everything is available via the LMS.

If you opt for the paper version, you are simply paying for a study book to be printed and posted to your home, or place of work. You will use this book as a reference guide, but you will still be required to upload your assignments and correspond with your tutor via the LMS.

If you are unable to access our online LMS, we do have alternative options available, so please email [email protected] in order to request further support.

What do I need to do to get started?

We recommend that you choose a course that will interest you and help you to achieve your ambitions. If you would like some advice, or further information, contact us here or dial 0333 3445 690.

To purchase a course, simply click on the ‘Buy now’ button against your chosen course and follow the on screen instructions. Alternatively if you would prefer to purchase the course over the phone, call 0333 3445 690 and speak to one of our expert course advisors.

How much will it cost?

The cost largely depends on the type and size of the course. The course cost is determined by the expenses associated with its provision, taking into consideration the course's size and complexity, development costs, the presence of a study materials, and the level of tutor support required. Some courses also necessitate additional in-person assessments by assessors, which incur additional expenses and consequently affect the course's cost.

All prices are clearly stated on the course description page and will always be displayed prior to you committing to purchase a course.

Please note that there may be additional fees required should your course require an external invigilated assessment, such as A Levels, ICB qualifications etc. To clarify, please speak to a course advisor.

How do I enrol?

Once you've chosen your course, you have two options for enrolment:


  1. You can purchase the course online by clicking the "Buy now" button, which will enrol you automatically.
  2. Alternatively, you can call our helpline at 0333 3445 690, and our expert course advisors will assist you in signing up for the course and arrange for the delivery of any requested additional learning materials to your address.

All courses are available to purchase in full or via affordable monthly payments over 12 months. A £29 non-refundable deposit is required for monthly payments, and you will be required to set up a monthly direct debit.

We do not require you to complete a credit check to sign up for monthly payments.

How quickly will I receive my course materials?

We guarantee that you will receive any course materials ordered within 5 working days of registering, but for many of our courses it may take no more than 48 hours.

The course materials are always sent to you via a tracked courier service, to ensure that you receive your study book within our stated period.

Do I need any additional books or equipment to do my course?

All the relevant information required to complete your course is available via the LMS. Additional research via the internet is encouraged, depending on the level you are working at, to bolster knowledge of the subject area.

There is no requirement to purchase any additional materials.

What support will I receive?

You will have access to a dedicated personal tutor whom you can contact through the Learning Management System (LMS) for assistance and guidance on any course-related matters. Your tutor will only initiate contact in response to your messages. If you encounter any difficulties reaching your tutor, please don't hesitate to email us at [email protected]

Many courses require you to submit work to your tutor during the period of study, and your tutor will assess your work and provide feedback to you within 10 working days. Your tutor is available to you as much as you need them.

Please note that the course includes tutor support for a duration of 12 months. If you require additional time, please inform us, and we will make every effort to provide you with an option for a paid extension, if feasible, to assist you in completing your course.

Please be aware that our tutors are actively assisting multiple learners, and to ensure they are not inundated with excessive workloads, we have implemented a policy limiting learners to submitting a maximum of three units of work for evaluation at any given time. We recommend that you upload your completed units as you finish them. This way, you can benefit from your tutor's feedback to enhance your future assignment submissions.

How long will it take for my work to be marked by my tutor?

Your work will be marked and feedback returned to you within 10 working days after submission. This is because our tutors are required to provide detailed, considered feedback to our learners that may take a while to formulate. We find that by working this way, our learners actually complete their course in less time, as they rarely need to submit an assignment more than twice.

Whilst it is possible to submit multiple assignments at the same time, we advise that our learners submit only one at a time. We want our learners to develop as they progress through their course, and find this is best achieved when a student embarks on a new module having taken into account tutor feedback from the previous submission.

Kindly note that our tutors are currently supporting multiple learners simultaneously. In order to maintain a balanced workload for them, we have established a policy that restricts learners to submitting a maximum of three units of work for evaluation at any given time.

How long should it take to complete a course?

Depending on the course you have chosen, and the amount of time you can commit, it could take from 6 weeks to 12 months to complete your course. Your end of support date is when you need to have your course copmpleted by in order to be able to be certificated, this is usually 12 months from purchase.

The duration of the course is largely down to you. The beauty of home learning is that it allows you complete flexibility to fit your studies around your lifestyle and other commitments. You can dedicate as much, or as little, time as you want to your studies - no one will be chasing you for your work or asking why you haven’t submitted an assignment.

We do strongly recommend, though, that before you purchase a course you assess your ability to commit the necessary time to completing the course in a timeframe that will not leave you losing your motivation.

Will I have to sit an examination?

All of our courses are accredited, so you need to show that you have acquired the knowledge to pass the course – this may involve sitting an examination, but it depends on the course you have chosen.

Some courses require you to be continually assessed throughout the course, while others may require an end of course exam or assignment (which may be completed at home) to be submitted to your tutor.

Certain types of qualifications, A-levels and GCSEs for example, do require you to sit invigilated exams at a registered test centre. You will need to organise and pay for the examinations yourself, however full details of what you need to do will be available from the centre who are delivering the qualification.

If in doubt, please email [email protected], NCC can then discuss or put you in touch directly with the course provider.

Will I receive a qualification when I complete the course?

All of our courses are accredited and you will receive a certificate upon successful completion of the course.

For more information about this please see the section of the website that details how awarding bodies work and what the different types of qualifications are: https://www.ncchomelearning.co.uk/awarding-organisations

Can I take more than one course at a time?

Yes, you can take as many courses as your time allows, but we would recommend that you clearly evaluate how much time you can commit to your courses of study.

The good news is that if your circumstances change you can always take a limited break and come back to your studies to save your paid for support.

If you decide to enrol on more than one course at the same time, speak to our enquiries team for any bundle deals or offers.

Can I study from outside the UK?

Certainly, in most instances, there are no geographical constraints on where you can undertake your studies. However, it's important to note that specific courses may be subject to geographical limitations imposed by the Awarding Organisation, and these restrictions will be clearly stated in the course description.

You just need to be aware that all tutors are based in the UK and work may need to be submitted to them via post, although in most cases e-mail can be used.

Where the course requires that you sit an invigilated exam at a test centre, there are many exam centres outside of the UK. However, we would advise that you check with us before purchasing one of these courses if you want to study from abroad.

What if I’ve chosen the wrong course?

If, after receiving the course, you decide it isn’t the right course for you, you may return the materials within 14 days, provided you have not yet submitted any coursework for evaluation. Please note that you will be responsible for covering the return shipping costs. We will refund your payment, minus a non-refundable deposit of £29. Additionally, you have the option to select an alternative course that better matches your goals and aspirations.

For any help on cancelling your course please email [email protected], we will only deal with cancellation enquiries via email.

What is a Totum Card?

Totum is the new brand for UK student cards and replaces the old NUS student card. NCC students are eligible to sign-up for the Totum card where applicable, giving access to a multitude of retail, food and travel special discounts. For more information, you can visit their website: https://www.totum.com/

“Wedding Planner Course”

I am really enjoying my wedding planner course. The study materials are really easy to understand and it helps you to research in more detail from other learning resources. I feel confident studying at home and as there is no pressure to complete specific deadlines. it makes life so much easier for me to care for my husband who has stage 4 cancer. It’s a good focus and allows me to have some time for me whilst learning a new skill and opportunity to start my own business when the time is right.

“I have done the course I'm doing before…”

I have done the course I'm doing before but i ran out of time so I decided to redo it and I have loved every minute of the course. I have done similar courses with other home learning sites but this is by far the best I have used.

“Great course”

It was great course. I got enough material to understand about the module and gave me more time to work on my assessments and do more research and read extra. I like to work and study on my own and my own time so this course was perfect between any other things in my life. And as I am that kind of person who likes to do research on specific topics this course helped me to do so. I was also happy on feedbacks that my tutor gave me so I knew what I needed to add or remove.

“Very happy”

So far I am very happy with my chosen course. Course notes are very easy to understand and full of information. Best part of this course is that I can make lot of resource in books, magazines and Internet to finish my assessments. Only thing that sometimes takes too long is feedback from my tutor. But otherwise truly recommend NCC Home Learning to everyone who wants to educate themselves on their own time.
