Indent MusicNSW Skills Recognition Program09.07.2013
RANSW congratulates the regional participants in the 2013 Indent Skills Recognition Program .
Indent is the youth project of MusicNSW and has just announced the 18 young people who will complete a TAFE Certificate II in Live Production, Theatre and Events through their voluntary work putting on music events in their local communities in 2013. Many of the selected young people are living in rural or remote NSW.
Program participants are:
- Albury: Tedra Boag, Edward Dean, Jessica Gay, Ayesha Middleton and Sophie Cochrane
- Byron Bay: Victor Lopez Greses, Alejandra Luciani Degwitz and Ori Shema
- Campbelltown: Sebastian Houbert and Nikola Kantarovski
- City of Sydney: Geneva Walker and Mandy Wong
- Evans Head: Ned Cain
- Gosford: Amira Khedr, Billy Matthews, Jacob Richardson and Nicholas Kelly
- Cowra: Dylan Oliver
This group of young people (aged 14 – 22) have been given the opportunity to report on their practical life and work experience to gain a national qualification. Indent works with young people, collecting evidence of their experiences through working on and presenting music events and festivals.
By completing a portfolio throughout the year of their work and experience, the participant is rewarded with a Certificate II in Live Production, Theatre and Events from Sydney TAFE.
“Indent has provided a successful model for supporting young people with their first steps into the music, events and entertainment industries for 13 years” said Chris Zajko, MusicNSW Project Manager, “We’ve recognised that there’s a huge opportunity here to formally acknowledge the skills of these young people, whilst also providing established industry practitioners and organisations with a new generation of competent, skilled and confident prospective employees.”
This program is a partnership between Indent, Sydney TAFE, NSW Department of Education & Communities, and funded by Arts NSW.
