Jennine Tax, Study Gold Coast - Advocating for, uniting & growing our international education sector

Episode description (35 mins)

Study Gold Coast CEO Jennine Tax - the 2021 Gold Coast Woman of the Year for the Education Sector - reckons she has struck gold with her job, "selling education in a city that I love and feel so passionate about". In this podcast, Jennine talks about the role of Study Gold Coast in promoting the City as a world-class education destination, supporting the students who come here, connecting them with local employers and the community, and the organisation's mega-plans for the future. And if your business is struggling with skills shortages take note: Jennine says international enrolments will be back to pre-COVID levels by about the end of this year, students will have work rights of up to 48 hours per fortnight from 1 July, and then post-study work rights of up to 5 years in regional areas, which includes the Gold Coast. Listen in for a wealth of information and insight (not to mention unbridled enthusiasm!) about this key pillar of the Gold Coast economy.
