How can Signee Industry help your Print Business?
With more and more print shops diversifying into signage products, signmaking training has become a key element in the successful integration of these products into printer services.
Over the past 3 years, The New Zealand Sign and Display Association has been developing a pre-vocational training scheme for people entering the signage industry. Developed with the assistance of training professionals and NZSDA accredited master signmakers, Signee pre-vocational training programs are being promoted in high schools and tertiary outlets all over New Zealand from early next year.
The SIGNEE GATEWAY PROGRAM in conjunction with Competenz is designed to create an awareness of the signage industry for school leavers as well as giving them a clear direction into a signage career path. Consisting of work experience with a professional full-service sign shop it also offers credits towards NCEA for school-age participants.
THE SIGNEE INDUSTRY PROGRAM is an industry recognised training programme that focusses on beginner’s to guide them into the sign making industry. The program is directed at those already employed within the sign-making industry but at entry-level, those looking to change direction with their career, or school leavers interested in finding out what a career in the sign industry would be like. The Signee Industry training programme is designed to provide a well-informed insight into what a career in the New Zealand sign industry is all about. It provides fundamental knowledge and skills in the ‘six’ pillars’ of sign making and health and safety. It is completed through practical work experience in a full-service sign business, a detailed training and assessment manual, and online learning, giving a great grounding in the basics of signage production. If you are looking for training in signmaking, Signee is the first step and industry recognised.
NZSDA will be furthering the Signee training with specialised courses in all fields of sign making from vehicle wrapping to LED signage over the coming months/years. As we working side by side with the Signmaking NZQA recognised Apprenticeship Certificate, we are heading toward a bright future as well-trained signage production specialists.
