Wayne Jenkins

Wayne Jenkins has been working as an educator for the past 15 years and completed a Bachelor degree in Vocational Education and Training (BVET) in 1996. Wayne has owned and operated several businesses including a mechanical workshop, service station and parts wholesale business. In the 1997 Wayne commenced teaching at the Wagga Wagga TAFE in the automotive department as a part time teacher delivering training to the Automotive Heavy Vehicle apprentices. He became a permanent teacher in 2005 and than a Head Teacher of the Automotive Department in 2010.

Over the past decade or so Wayne noticed a quantum leap in the technology introduced into motor vehicles including trucks. They needed to increase their skills and knowledge in electronics and the use of technical equipment to be able to work in the industry, which exposed Wayne to a skills shortage problem within the industry. Due to this ongoing skills shortage problem, this year Wayne decided to set up a company called WAYTON Video Productions with partner Tony Salifia and built a film studio to produce a range of quality online automotive training videos for the heavy vehicle truck market.
