THEY arrived at ANZ Stadium this week not to see a major sporting event, but rather to chase their dreams.

Ten Australians stepping out on a new career path, keen to acquire knowledge and skills that will set them up for a lifetime.

They are the second group of job-qualified candidates from Allara Learning – the leading national training and education provider specialising in the hospitality, retail and business sectors.

Allara Learning has teamed with Stadium operator VenuesLive to deliver a training program ideally suited to people looking for a career in the vibrant hospitality industry.

In September, ANZ Stadium welcomed seven new members to its casual staffing roster on event days.

The seven new staff members had all just received a Certification III in Hospitality from Allara Learning after an intensive four-week training course undertaken on-site at ANZ Stadium.

The trainees had all worked some of the biggest events on the calendar, including NRL footy finals, in busy bar and food preparation areas.

The Hospitality Training Program offered by Allara Learning and VenuesLive provides a mix of both classroom based and hands-on instruction from professional trainers.

The maiden course was a complete success, with each participant receiving a nationally recognised SIT30616 Certificate III in Hospitality and earning casual employment with VenuesLive.

Allara Learning’s motto encourages Australians to Learn, Grow & Shine, and partnering with VenuesLive has enabled Allara to offer on-the-job skills hospitality training in one of the most dynamic environments in the Australian events industry.

Allara Learning CEO Andrew Lewis said: "The first program has been a tremendous success with 100% employment outcomes.

"We are delighted to have teamed up with VenuesLive, who are committed to investing in local jobseekers by providing training and employment opportunities. 

"We look forward to delivering more programs in the future with VenuesLive and making a genuine difference in people's lives."

VenuesLive recognises the opportunity it has to make a positive difference in the community and stands by its Mission Statement “To make the Greatest Things Happen for our Customers and Partners, our People and Our Community.”

General Manager of Human Resources at VenuesLive James Treloar said: “It has been extremely rewarding to see people of all ages receive on-the-job specialised training in the hospitality industry and to show such proficiency that they have become members of our event day staffing team.

“Through the Allara Learning program, we are not only able to provide training, but also employment opportunities for fully qualified and dedicated individuals.”
