The Visitor Experience Training (VXT) office and training facility in Launceston was officially opened by the Premier, Peter Gutwein MP. The Tasmanian Government recognised the achievements of VXT over the past 11 months and understood the vital importance of VXT as an industry-led training organisation to ensure we have the right workforce to support the industry.
Premier Gutwein noted ”the Government allocated $1 million in the 2020-21 Budget to fund the establishment of a hospitality industry-led training organisation, and I am very pleased that VXT is now in full swing and future-proofing the industry for years to come.
The establishment of its head office in Launceston’s CBD provides a central base for the VXT team to engage with stakeholders around the state.
The facility will play host to its first course in mid-March, with a number of other in-person VXT training courses scheduled including those for Launceston, Devonport, Burnie, Sorell, Hobart, King Island, Queenstown, New Norfolk, Smithton, Port Arthur, and St Helens.
All courses are introductory level and perfect for anyone looking for work in the hospitality and tourism industries. Enrol now: https://vxt.org.au/courses/upcoming-courses/
