Leicester-based event management company Showsec is celebrating the graduation of four of its operations executives, who have been awarded a Foundation Degree in Applied Professional Studies in Crowd Management.
Glen Stevenson, Simon Howard and Carlos Campbell donned gowns and mortarboards for a graduation ceremony which took place at the Derby Arena recently.
A fourth operations executive, Mark Norbury, also received the Foundation Degree.
Another group of the company’s managers are undergoing training in order to teach aspects of the Foundation Degree.
“Our partnership with the University of Derby’s Business Centre means that we are constantly looking at ways to remain at the forefront of management training in the industry,” said Keith Hackett, Showsec’s learning and development manager.
“The operational team has been further strengthened by the latest graduates acquiring a Foundation Degree and they are to be commended for their dedication and professionalism in combining those studies with an extremely busy workload.
“This Level 5 qualification means they are ready now to move on to greater things, making them potential candidates for the area managers’ programme in the future.”
Showsec work closely with the University of Derby’s Business Centre to create a Training and Development programme designed to give individuals the best-possible career pathway.
