Rigging industry trials live events trailblazer apprenticeshipNo Comments
Rigging industry experts from across the UK have joined forces at Birmingham’s’ Barclaycard Arena to trial the Trailblazer Live Event Rigging Apprenticeship assessment.
The Live Event Rigging Apprenticeship, part of the governments’ Trailblazer scheme encouraging three million new apprentices by 2020, has been developed by the National Rigging Advisory Group (NRAG) to provide formal training to new recruits, supporting them beyond the National Rigging Certificate Level 2, and plug the gap in trainee numbers to fill increasing demand throughout the rigging industry.
Blackout’s HR manager Adelaide Johannsen comments: “It is testament to the hard work and commitment to the rigging industry of the NRAG members that we have successfully developed the Trailblazer Live Event Rigging apprenticeship to this point. Following the trial run in which key experts and trainees kindly gave up their time to feed back on the syllabus content, we are now in the position to ensure the course is perfected to the highest of standards for the enrolling pupils.”
