The Facility Operations Apprenticeship is for people who are building their career to take the lead in a facility operations role within an indoor or outdoor sport, arts, entertainment or recreation venue or facility.
To successfully achieve this apprenticeship you will need to be employed in a sport, art, entertainment or recreation workplace for at least a 12 month period. You may already be in a facility supervision role or your workplace has identified this as part of your development pathway.
This programme will take up to 2 years to complete 120 credits, and has a mixture of written and practical tasks (projects). These are completed and assessed online in Skills Activator – Skills Active’s learning management system (www.skillsactivator.org.nz). Most people will receive their training through their workplace. There will be some webinars, reference links, and learning support information online within Skills Activator that can help you.
