SAE Auckland and Crescendo are combining forces to create bright futures for our rangatahi.
SAE Creative Media Institute (SAE) and recording studio and social enterprise, Crescendo are proud to announce an industry partnership. The partnership brings together two prominent creative organisations, both passionate about supporting and growing the next generation of young creatives in Tāmaki Makaurau.
While this synergistic partnership will provide learning experiences for both SAE and Crescendo staff, a key element of the collaboration will be job opportunities and work experience for SAE students during and after studying. With Crescendo already providing music, creative industry and audio engineering mentoring for youth, opening up further opportunities for SAE graduates is an obvious opportunity.
“We’re very excited to be partnering with Crescendo,” says SAE Auckland Director, Dr Suzette Major. “We’re looking forward to supporting each others’ organisations and the important work we both do in driving passion for the creative arts and endeavouring to build knowledge and confidence for young people with real world industry experience and training.”
Crescendo’s CEO Cat Percy agrees the partnership will be mutually beneficial.
“It will provide a positive impact on Aotearoa’s creative industries as a whole. We’ll see even stronger graduates emerging from our programmes and staff and mentors who will continue to learn, grow and share their industry knowledge. Students will have opportunities to gain hands-on experience in our ‘teaching studio’, working with clients on live audio jobs.”
The partnership between SAE Auckland and Crescendo was signed this week and takes effect immediately.
