Venue Stewards

You need the qualification...

Stewarding companies and venue managers abide by the latest Green Guide – the industry standard for safety at sports grounds. So they expect stewards to be qualified to NVQ Level 2 or equivalent. don’t need the stress!

Whether you have experience or are new to the job, you will need to study for your NVQ2 in your own time. If you lead a busy life, that can be challenging.

That's why we've designed training that can:

  • fit in with everything else going on in your life; and

  • give you the best chance of completing the course and qualifying.

What the course covers

 Mandatory units

  • How to prepare for spectator events

  • Controlling the entry, exit and movement of spectators

  • Monitoring crowds and responding to problems at events

  • Dealing with injuries, illness and other emergencies


Bonus units

  • Communication and use of radio

  • Health & Safety in the workplace

We help you to learn your way

Not sure about being ‘back at school’?


Relax. You've learned a lot in life already – otherwise you wouldn't be in line for a stewarding job.


We’ll help you use the learning skills that got you this far. That's one of the things we're good at.

You’ll be in the capable hands of a friendly tutor who's walked the talk.


All our teaching staff come from top positions in event management. And all of them hold high academic qualifications in managing spectator events. They're not just skilled trainers, either. You’ll find the course enjoyable and instructive thanks to the wide store of experience they draw on.

Some of your course will be in a classroom setting.


When you're not in the classroom, you'll study at home. But you'll still be supported.


That’s because we don't believe unsupported distance learning is your best route to success. In fact, the huge drop-out rate from unsupported distance-learning courses speaks for itself.


Even more importantly, we don’t think that’s a practical way to learn practical skills.


We believe in giving you the highest standard of instruction to equip you to handle an important job well.

Hate exams? It’s different with us


Even if school exams were the stuff of nightmares, don’t worry!


We’ve worked with all kinds of learners who’ve gone on to be excellent stewards – from high-flying graduates to folk who left school without passing an exam.


So we know fairness means being flexible when it comes to testing your ability. We can match your assessment method to your needs. If you’ve put in the work and done the learning, you should pass. It’s what employers want too; they need to know their spectators are in safe hands.

The right course for you?


  • You give yourself the best chance of gaining your NVQ, because supported learning in and out of the classroom means it's likelier you'll complete your training.

  • You get face-to-face instruction. When it comes to mastering practical skills, nothing else comes close.

  • Our tutors don’t just come with high academic credentials. They have years of experience in the industry. You’ll enjoy learning with them.

  • You get two bonus units. We don't just send you out with the bare minimum. You’ll also be trained in communication and the use of radio; and health & safety in the workplace. Employers rate these important skills highly. They’ll make you more competent at work, and more impressive in the job market.

  • Included in the fee are lesson notes, your achievement record and your assessment.

  • We test your stewarding skills – not your exam skills.

  • This National Vocational Qualification Level 2 in Understanding Stewarding at Spectator Events is awarded by Industry Qualifications, a body noted for the highest standard of assessment integrity and approved by the UK qualification regulators.

  • It will only take you 8 weeks to gain a qualification that’s respected industry-wide.

Study time – in and out of the classroom


We estimate the course will take you 40–50 hours over eight weeks, including classroom time and supported home study.


Classroom input may be either:

  • four fortnightly 3-hour evening classes, including assessment

  • or one full day, plus assessment time.


Classroom sessions for the next few courses will be in central Glasgow. The venue is handy for public transport and parking, with nearby car parks and metered street parking. Future courses may run classes in other towns and cities.
