Training in Sustainable Event Management is now available for the first time to events students in Australia through an educational institute. In a global first, TAFE’s Travel 21fiftythree is offering training to events students in use of the Sustainable Event Management System (SEMS). Knowledge of this system will put these students ahead of their peers in the events industry.
Although training in SEMS has not been available to students previously, it has become industry best practice and so new employees with an understanding of SEMS have come into demand.
The new training which is being offered by TAFE NSW – Western Sydney Institute will give students skills and knowledge enabling them to identify cost savings, report on performance and comply with regulations all based around Sustainability Management.
TAFE events students will be making use of the system in preparing for their operational management of the World Responsible Tourism Day to be held in November which will see Travel 21fiftythree partner with other key stakeholders.
Tony Clarke from TAFE NSW – Western Sydney Institute’s Travel 21fiftythree said that the new system provides a great opportunity for events students to keep up with this recent development in the industry.
“Our event students will gain skills, ideas, and strategy for sustainability which will enhance their employment prospects,” Tony said.
“This innovation is clearly another demonstration as to why Travel 21fiftythree was awarded the Australian Tourism Award for Tourism Education and Training in 2011.”
