Kingscliff TAFE has secured a government grant to send ten Diploma of Events students on an international educational tour to attend the 2014 Commonwealth Games in Glasgow, Scotland. This opportunity will be available to those students who will commence studies at TAFE in February.

With the Gold Coast set to host the 2018 Commonwealth Games, the knowledge the students will gain while in Glasgow attending an event of this calibre will be invaluable.

‘It is our intention that through this program our students will gain hands-on international event experience that directly relates to their studies and will place them in a unique position to gain future employment,’ says Tammy Papalia, teacher of Event Management.

Not only will the tour include time spent at the games; organisers are planning a visit to the world-renowned Gleneagles Golf Resort, which will host the prestigious Ryder’s Cup later this year. They will then travel onto Edinburgh to attend the Edinburgh Fringe Festival, the world’s largest arts festival, which encompasses 40,000 performances in more than 250 different venues. Finally, to conclude this trip of a lifetime, the students will attend the Royal Edinburgh Military Tattoo.

‘This tour will present a fantastic opportunity for us to build relationship with international organisations to initiate future exchange programs,’ says Tammy

It would seem that there is no better time to contact Kingscliff TAFE and enrol in a Diploma of Events and pursue a career in the event industry.
