Traineeships that deliver fit-for-purpose training and skill development.

Industry Traineeships


EEAA in partnership with TAFE NSW and Apprenticeships Support Australia, has developed industry traineeships that deliver fit-for-purpose training and skill development for school leavers and people starting out in their careers.

Are you looking to join this dynamic and fulfilling industry?

Events and exhibitions are:

Exciting – we have the opportunity to work on shows from every conceivable industry sector including Oz Comic-Con, Motorclassica, The Sydney International Boat Show, CeBIT Australia, Good Food & Wine Show, Fitness Show, Australian International Airshow, Dog Lovers Show and Hair Expo Australia.

Dynamic – there are many different career paths you can choose, from organising these important and exciting shows, to working in the venues that host them or being part of the supplier teams that create the magic and help deliver the visitor experience.

There are roles in event operations, sales, marketing, administration, design, AV and production, freight and logistics, stand build and construction.

Purposeful – did you know that we contribute over $3.1 billion to the Australian economy? Our sector is vital to economic development, trade and export, employment, visitation and knowledge sharing. We contribute to the growth and sustainability of all Australia’s key economic pillars and help position our nation as a destination for business events.


  1. Traineeship for organisers, suppliers and administration roles (SIT30517 Certificate III Events)
  2. Traineeship for staging and technical service roles (CUA30415 Certificate III in Live Production)

Traineeships combine paid work in a real job and structured training. A full-time trainee is employed under a training contract to work for 38 hours per week. Trainees work with some independence under the guidance of more senior staff.

The structured training will be delivered by TAFE NSW Ultimo and will be timetabled in consultation with employers to ensure flexibility during peak periods.

Are you an employer looking to recruit new talent?

Traineeships offer the opportunity of recruiting a well-trained employee who is gaining qualifications and skills tailored to your organisation along with other potential benefits.

  • Trainees can be a source of new talent for employers
  • Workforce development from the ground up and improved staff retention
  • Trainees can contribute to your bottom line with practical skills and knowledge gained through their training
  • Financial incentives and benefits are available to employers of trainees
