TAFE NSW is looking for experienced professionals from the brewing industry to join the team as teachers, trainers and assessors.
The vocational training body is looking for experienced brewers with either a diploma and three years of industry experience or five years in the industry in total.
The Independent Brewers Association lobbied and partnered with state governments to facilitate training and education options for the brewing industry, an effort led by IBA director Richard Adamson to help fight against chronic shortages of qualified personnel.
Today, the IBA negotiated with Training Services NSW and TAFE NSW to provide fully funded initial training to the brewing industry.
An IV certificate in training and assessment is a must for VET [vocational education training] trainers, but the IBA has worked with TAFE to enable professionals to become trainers before obtaining their Certificate IV.
TAFE NSW will provide training on the corporate presenter skill set, meaning brewing industry professionals will be able to teach ‘under supervision’ at a range of Registered Training Organizations (RTOs) such as TAFE NSW . It will also provide a unit of competence towards the IV TAE Certificate.
Interested parties will be required to commit to attending and participating in all courses which will last approximately 30 hours over a period of four to six weeks.
“If you’re good at your job and enjoy working with people, there’s a good chance you really enjoy this training and the opportunity to become a teacher,” according to TAFE NSW and the IBA.
“Teaching roles in VET [vocational education training] sector tend to be part-time and can fit into your job as a brewer. You participate in the training of the workforce of tomorrow, and that is a very important role. “
The expression of interest must be returned by the deadline of July 14, 2021.
