A new partnership between TasTAFE and Wine Tasmania will help Tasmanians find work and meet demand for workers to assist with the 2021 wine grape harvest.

For the first time in 2021, free specialised ‘how to pick’ wine grapes training is being offered by Wine Tasmania for 30 people on 10 March (North) and 11 March (South).

Conducted in partnership with TasTAFE and the Tasmanian Government, the session will provide detailed and practical training at two vineyard locations.

All participants who display competency in the activity will receive a Certificate of Completion and their details will be shared with Tasmanian wine producers and labour hire companies for potential employment during the upcoming 2021 vintage and beyond.

Training is free and includes free transport for participants.

People interested in undertaking the training can contact Sue at TasTAFE on (03) 6777 2634 or email sue.forrester-clarke@tastafe.tas.edu.au or register your interest here.

Further details will be provided upon registration.
