A formal, two-part assessment, comprising a written proposal and presentation

  • Responding to a brief, participants have two weeks to prepare their materials in advance of a presentation to the assessment panel
  • Final accreditation is split evenly across ability to demonstrate written and oral skills, including:
    • Understanding a client brief and connecting a proposition to its objectives
    • Creative approach to sponsorship sales; ability to offer flexible solutions
    • Confidence and authority in a live presentation environment
    • Product knowledge
    • Professionalism
    • Commercial acumen
    • Answering Q&A sessions.


Time commitment

  • With the majority of participants in full-time employment, care is taken to ensure that the course workload doesn’t interfere with ongoing work commitments
  • Participants are given short exercises to undertake between sessions, with a further hour of commitment in time expected between sessions
  • Preparation for the final assessment amalgamates these exercises and requires probably a further half day of preparation time.


Who can do the course?

  • Anyone wanting to upgrade skills in sponsorship sales, or gain the necessary credentials to enter this sector.
