Understanding Stewarding at Spectator Events (evening)

Students will be given training on how to work in the events support industry as a steward and will be given the opportunity to take part in “field trips” to music and sporting venues, as well as guest talks from experienced industry personnel.


As part of the UK-wide “Bridging the Gap” project, students who successfully complete this course will be entered into a database of stewards for the London 2012 Olympic and Paralympic Games. With the Commonwealth Games coming to Glasgow in 2014, students will be well positioned for the rise in demand for trained stewarding staff.


Students receive a BTEC Level 2 Certificate in Understanding Stewarding at Spectator Events.
