slatevfx Traineeship Update

Below is an excerpt from the Spring/Summer 2022 edition of Training Matters; the NSW TAFE Newsletter.

Slatevfx continues to support the future of the visual effects industry by providing opportunities for students and graduates to gain experience working on actual features and series. We currently have two regular interns, have recently hired two graduates from Enmore TAFE and just converted a regular intern to graduate employment. We first started working with ACFIPS three years ago and introduced a high school graduate to our team who has completed his Certificate IV Screen and Media and is currently en- rolled in the Diploma program. We encourage any support for Australian-owned small local businesses to allow us to continue to provide this vital introduction to industry.

CMTO (Community Media Training Organisation) trainees from Fresh 92.7 are progressing well in their Certificate III in Screen and Media Traineeship. They’ve been working full-time at Fresh while also having weekly training sessions with a CMTO trainer. Alex, one of the trainees, says he enjoys the training as it pro- vides ‘the feeling of being heavily involved in the class … that the teacher knows you and wants to encourage your growth in the course’. Jake, his fellow trainee, has even progressed from his role at Fresh 92.7 and will now be the morning announcer at The Riverina’s Hit 93.1. CMTO is glad to see that the traineeship have such positive employment outcomes.
