The National Centre for Vocational Education Research (NCVER) ‘No Frills’ conference in Hobart this week has provided the ultimate real life learning opportunity for TasTAFE Drysdale students.
The conference, which ran from 5-7 July was hosted at Drysdale Hobart with students and staff assisting with many aspects of the conference.
Diploma of Events students helped with the conference set-up as w ell as roles such as registration and monitoring of sessions. Cookery and Food and Beverage students provided catering and service throughout the conference and prepared and served food to 130 people at the conference dinner in the Drysdale South restaurant on Thursday night. Tourism students also staffed an information booth to give delegates more information about some of our local tourist attractions and experiences.
With close to 200 delegates attending the conference, the event was a fantastic opportunity for our students to put the skills and knowledge they are learning into practice. The students’ involvement will count towards their final course assessments.
Drysdale staff across were also involved in the logistics, catering and service at the conference and making sure things ran smoothly.
