ETNZ Announces 100x COVID-19 Scholarships for the New Zealand Certificate in Entertainment and Event Operations, Level 3. 

In these unprecedented times ETNZ has been looking at ways to help the industry. ETNZ recognises the need to retain and keep engaged the Entertainment and Event Technology workforce. One way we have committed to doing this is by offering Scholarships in the NZ Certificate in Entertainment and Event Operations, Level 3. This Scholarship will cover the cost of the qualification and the assessment.

ETNZ would like to thank those assessors that have waived the assessment fee in exchange for a donation per assessment carried out to enable us to offer these one hundred Scholarships.

ETNZ would also like to thank an anonymous donor and the former association NZATT, who gifted us these funds. They have been held in a trust for training, which we have released to make the offer of these Scholarships possible.

In addition to the Scholarships, ETNZ will offer a series of regional workshops delivered through venues to provide training for the Level 3 Qualification. These workshops are designed to work through all the material required to attain Level 3. Whilst attending this workshop is not a requirement, neither of receiving the Scholarship nor attaining the Level 3 Qualification, we invite candidates to indicate in their application whether they would like to attend a workshop.

“In response to your survey feedback, and acknowledging we are in unprecedented and uncertain times, we recognised a need to support the industry. One of the ways we can do this is by offering these opportunities to upskill while we all wait for the industry to restart. This is just one small way in which we can offer support to the industry. We are listening and trying to find ways within our means to support you.”
Vicki Cooksley, ETNZ President

The ETNZ executive continue to explore further ways to support the industry through this time.
