The VET Teacher / Trainer: Marc's story

Marc Nichol began working in the events industry in 2001, completed his Diploma of Event Management, and then remained working in the events arena for the next seven years.

In 2011, seeking a career change, Marc looked for opportunities to pass on his experience to the next generation of event professionals. After taking on sessional teaching work in the events program at Holmesglen, he soon realised he felt right at home in a VET environment.

While at Holmesglen Marc has actively sought to enhance students’ experience within the programs he has developed and delivered. He continues to focus on best preparing students for the workplace through the initiatives he has driven including internships within industry and international study trips.

A strong believer in learning outside the classroom, Marc has sought to make changes that reflect that philosophy. He is still active in the industry and is always looking for new insights and experiences to enhance his teaching.
