If you are considering enrolling or are already a student in QC Event School, you’re probably wondering what tutors are looking for when it comes to grading coursework. I know you want to put your best foot forward so we’re giving you the inside scoop on what tutors are looking for, how to use the available resources to your advantage, and providing you with some examples of the feedback you’ll receive throughout your course. These tips to your QC Event School assignments will help you produce top-notch work, which will be reflected in your overall grades!

Follow Directions

Ok, so this one is a no-brainer. Our tutors would like it if students carefully read the assignment instructions and provide everything requested. While many assignments are straight-forward, there are several more complicated assignments with multiple components.

I would recommend taking a break after completing an assignment and revisiting both the completed assignment and the assignment instructions with fresh eyes. Double-check to ensure you’ve completed all mandatory components and that your document saved properly!

Follow Directions Provided in Event Planning Assignments

One of the best resources at your disposal is your tutor’s audio feedback. In the feedback, your tutor will draw on their professional planning experience to give you tips and guidance, as well as let you know what you’ve done well and where you could improve. It is important to take their advice and suggestions and follow any directions they provide to implement in your next assignment. Always listen to your previous unit’s feedback prior to submitting your next unit, as this way, you’ll be able to make any adjustments necessary to improve your work and your grade. Sample some real feedback from our lovely tutor Candice, in response to a student’s Unit B submission from our Event Decor course. Listen closely as Candice provides invaluable advice within the audio feedback.

Pretend Your Tutor is the Client

Many of your course assignments are based on real-life case studies which require you to plan an event on paper based on a fictional client’s specific needs. One tip for enhancing the quality of your work is to imagine your tutor is that client and your assignment is your formal proposal for their upcoming event.

With this in mind, you’ll want to put in that extra effort to truly sell your client on your ideas. Be descriptive, especially if you are presenting unique ideas that a client or your tutor may not be familiar with. Even if you have a crystal-clear vision in mind you need to remember that your client isn’t a mind-reader! They will need you to describe and explain your ideas to them in great detail.

Use Supporting Visual Aids

As a planner, it’s often preferable to meet with clients face-to-face because it allows you to enhance your proposals with visual aids such as pre-made centerpieces, fabric samples or even look books. That being said, it is important to be able to convey your vision across distances too!

Many of your clients will be busy individuals (too busy to plan their own events!) Their demanding, fast-paced lives mean that email communication will be a necessity. You can still articulate your vision without the use of physical props, it just means you’ll need to give your written proposals a visual boost!

Use Supporting Visual Aids for Assignments

The same goes for your assignments since you are communicating with your tutor electronically across distances. For example, if you are presenting a bouquet idea you would want to insert sample images or links to images into your document so your tutor can see what you’re talking about. Alternatively, if you are trying to describe a particular party-game or type of entertainment you could include a link to a demonstrative video from YouTube.

Just keep in mind that inserting images into your document will increase the overall size of your document. You may want to resize the images prior to inserting them so they aren’t too big for uploading!


Having great ideas is essential to being a successful planner; however, your ability to present your ideas in a professional manner is equally vital! Spelling and grammatical errors detract from the overall impact of your creative vision.

For your assignments, you’ll want to write in full sentences with proper punctuation. Try to strike a balance between being descriptive while remaining clear and concise! When you are finished, do a thorough edit then ask a friend or family member to do a quick review.

Common errors to look out for:

Once you have a polished, professional final version you are confident with, you can upload and submit your work!

Do Your Research

Our tutors love to receive assignments from students whose commitment and drive shines through in their work! Conscientious A+ students always go above and beyond what is being asked in a given assignment. They present work that is thorough, thoughtful and well-researched.

Do Proper Event Planning Industry Research

Any additional research you do will help inform the choices you make when completing your assignments. Here’s a bit of direction into the type of research you’ll want to do throughout the course and beyond:

Don’t be Afraid to Ask for Help!

Feel like you’ve read the same assignment instructions ten times over and you’re still unsure what the assignment is asking for or if you’re headed in the right direction? There’s no need to suffer in silence!

Step away from the assignment to give your brain a much-needed rest and shoot the school a quick email for clarification. Or if you prefer to talk it through with someone you can always get in touch by phone or via Live Chat. The Student Support Team is here for exactly this purpose – to provide support and guidance to our students throughout the duration of their course and beyond!

Not only do you have access to our amazing Support Team for clarification or advice, but you also have the opportunity to get answers from your tutor, a successful professional in the field. The advice they have is priceless to a new planner trying to break into the market, so don’t be afraid to submit questions within your assignments! This way, they’ll be able to response directly in the audio feedback. Here’s a great example of a student in the Event and Wedding Planning course who took the opportunity to ask some questions. Listen in as Candice provides her advice.
