1,000th ICC Sydney team member qualifies through TAFE NSW partnership
International Convention Centre Sydney (ICC Sydney) has achieved another key milestone this week, with 1,000 enrolees receiving nationally recognised industry qualifications via its unique training partnership with TAFE NSW.
Launched in August 2016, the initiative has seen the development of tailored educational courses across hospitality, commercial cookery, audio visual, business administration and security. It is open to full-time and casual workers, as well as select students from TAFE NSW, and has been designed to support training to the highest industry standards.
ICC Sydney Chief Executive Geoff Donaghy said the venue’s dynamic approach to professional development is already paying dividends and empowering its staff.
Donaghy advised “at ICC Sydney, we believe that it is our people who define our offering and underpin our success, and we are 100 per cent committed to their growth and development. To date, we have invested in training to ensure our team is not only operating to the venue’s world class standards, but to support them with strong career progression.
“We have now experienced more than 1,000 enrolments in programs delivering industry qualifications and I look forward to seeing more great talent developed through this program.”
TAFE NSW Managing Director Jon Black said the joint initiative includes the delivery of courses across eLearning, on the job training, classroom based learning and seminars, advising “TAFE NSW teachers have delivered great results since this training began meaning that ICC Sydney is set to be supported by some of the top talent in the industry. It’s also a great example of how blended learning can result in some of the best training available. This program ensures that our students can kick important professional goals and I look forward to seeing the initiative continue to thrive.”
Ash Bull, a casual Food and Beverage with ICC Sydney – and their 1,000th enrolee, said the support he received at ICC Sydney was enabling him to progress his career in what is a diverse and inclusive work environment.
Bull stated “since my first day, ICC Sydney has given me the tools and knowledge I’ve needed to develop new skills. It’s a supportive environment with a very practical approach to training, allowing me to excel and be the best team member that I can be.”
ICC Sydney’s people and its industry leading HR initiatives are already securing awards with the team picking up both the Australian HR Team of the Year & Best Recruitment Campaign at the recent Australian HR Awards.
