Events industry gets direct pipeline to future workforce through EEAA traineeship program
EEAA chief executive Joyce DiMascio said attracting the right candidates to the exhibition and event sector has been identified as a major priority by its members.
“We are pleased to be working with TAFE NSW and Apprenticeships Support Australia to create a direct pipeline into our workforce through a series of ‘industry first’ traineeship programs.” she said.
“These tailored traineeship programs are designed to attract new entrants to the industry while at the same time offering incentives and support to those businesses who seek to be involved.”
In a video testimonial by EEAA Members that celebrates 25 years of the Association, Libbie Ray, general manager of AV 24/7, says she supports this industry program.
“EEAA really gets down to the nitty gritty of what our industry really requires to move forward and be successful,” Ray said.
“Something that we have struggled with as a business is finding staff that are aligned with our company and who are well-trained, specifically in the AV industry.
“The team at EEAA have been an incredible support and voice to drive traineeship opportunities through TAFE and this is going to be a huge game changer to the industry.”
