TAFE students ambassadors at G20 Meeting

11 September 2014

The G20 Finance Ministers and Central Bank Governors meeting will be attended by some of the world's most influential political and economic leaders and 23 TAFE Queensland North students will be there to help make their visit to far north Queensland an enjoyable one.

Event Management, Hospitality and Tourism students will all be playing important ambassadorial roles at the various G20 Meetings.

TAFE Queensland North General Manager, Joann Pyne said the invitation for TAFE Queensland North students to showcase their skills to such important delegates will be an unforgettable experience for the students.

"An essential component of the training we provide at TAFE Queensland North is to place our students in real-life work situations where they get invaluable practical experience at the front-line," Ms Pyne said.

"In July we had students working at the Castrol Townsville 500 - Driven by TAFE Queensland.

"Now once again our students will be on the world stage where their manners and expertise will be viewed as examples of the calibre of the Vocational Educational Training the students learn at TAFE Queensland North.

"I am confident our students will be proud ambassadors for our region and value the incredible opportunity that they have been given."

The students will receive their protocol training and accreditation badges from Australian Government Treasury Officials on Monday, 15 September. It is anticipated that the female students will receive G20 scarves and male students G20 ties that they will wear at the G20 Meetings.
