    Tottenham Hotspur Foundation is pleased to offer, in partnership with Hertford Regional College, the opportunity for students  to study on our new Higher National Diploma (HND) in Stadium and Event Management.

    Classes will be taught in world-class facilities at Hertford Regional College’s Ware Campus and Tottenham Hotspur Football Club.

    This course enables students to pursue a career in several fields including stadium management, sports and event management, box office operations, venue and event marketing, food and beverage, and corporate sales. On completion they may choose to top up to an honours degree course at university or go straight into employment.

    The course lasts for two years and is delivered at Levels 4 and 5, equivalent to years one and two of an honours degree and on completion students achieve the award of HND. (Students who leave after completing year one will normally achieve the Higher National Certificate (HNC) award.) Each year is divided into two semesters and students will usually study for 2 days a week plus the mandatory work placement at the Club.

    Work placement opportunities will be available with the Foundation’s Matchday Volunteering Kiosk and the Club’s official caterer Levy Restaurants.
