These study areas give our students a great foundation for a
professional career in the entertainment, arts, events and related
Qualifications range from Certificate III to Advanced Diploma and

training and professional practice.
Technical Production & Design students collaborate with performing
arts on several acting and dance shows every year and technicians also
work on live music gigs. Work placements with professional industry
organisations are an important part of many of our courses at the
Diploma and Advanced Diploma level and provide real-world, practical

Many students receive offers of employment well before they complete their course.
Technical Production Courses
Training for a career in Technical Production & Design opens a wide range of employment opportunities.
Prospective employers include performing arts companies, festivals, concert promoters, major arts and community events, film production companies, arts and convention centres and technical equipment and services companies.
Proliferation of technology and the applicability of technical production and design services mean graduates also work for many other industries including major sports, tourism and recreation events, for museums, galleries and theme parks and in retail display/visual merchandising and corporate presentation sectors.
Occupations covered by these courses are highly portable offering many graduates the opportunity to travel and work worldwide.
Our Technical Production & Design unit has close industry partnerships with major employers in South Australia and with many interstate and international organisations. These relationships are largely built on technical production and design, the professional career networks of staff, as well as their continuing involvement with industry through ongoing work and industry advisory groups. This helps to ensure our training is up-to-date and meets industry requirements. Our industry partners also host professional work placements and provide feedback to aid in students’ skills development and employability.
