Cultural Activities Coordinator
Cultural events form part of the leisure and culture industries. Currently there is a growing tendency for companies and institutions to organise cultural events to promote their products and services.
Managing a cultural event involves a complex synergy in which there are more and more disciplines at play and in which sociocultural activity coordination is beginning to gain more popularity.
This course aims to teach students, professionals and people involved in cultural management about the basics of planning cultural events from the perspective of cultural activity coordination. Professionals in the field will also benefit from the wide variety of skills and possibilities it has to offer.
4 weeks from the 4th April 2018 – 2nd May 2018.
100% online through our e-learning platform which you can access 24/7. There is no fixed learning rhythm and there are no set dates for the exams so you are free to work on the course and take the exams at your own pace. The only requirement is that you finish the course and pass the exams by the 2nd of May.
Everything you will need to complete the course is available on the online platform. The course has 3 modules and the material is available in PDF format to download, study and print if you wish. Our material is dynamic and varied and includes audiovisual multimedia resources, links to complementary information, interesting facts, practical examples and research tools. You will have access to an online forum with a tutoring team at your disposal for any queries.
There is an exam at the end of each module (between 10 and 20 questions each) and you are given three attempts to pass. There is also a final exam (between 30 and 40 questions) which covers topics from the entire course and must be passed on the first attempt. All exam questions are multiple choice, true/false or matching.
Once you have successfully passed all the exams, your certificate will be sent automatically to the email address you used for registration within 10 working days of the official end date of the course.
