Jakob Baumgartner, a Year 12 student at Shalom College in Bundaberg, has become Bundaberg Regional Council’s only School Based Trainee. Jakob is training as a theatre technician which will give him a Certificate III Live Production. He is working through Arts Ready which is an arm of AFL Sportsready nationally – proof that the arts and sport go hand in hand! Jakob began with the Moncrieff Entertainment Centre through self-initiated work experience and has demonstrated how keen he is to learn and be part of the theatre and cinema industry. Through this traineeship, the Theatre is able to contribute to the future training of technicians and the team at the Moncrieff Entertainment Centre are really excited to have Jakob on board.
