“To have my work selected for the second successive year is a huge honour and I am so thrilled that two of the works selected as honourable mentions were two of the most challenging assignments I completed in a Certificate IV in Photography and Photo Imaging course at TAFE NSW."
“My TAFE NSW courses taught me how to be a barista and gain extra skills like rostering, stock taking, ordering and also becoming a team leader which I use every day in my job at the zoo."
“I love everything about animals, particularly the unconditional love, loyalty and companionship they provide."
“At TAFE NSW I’m looking forward to providing an important link between local businesses, government organisations and the Aboriginal community."
“I’d absolutely recommend these services to anyone. While they may be students, they are always extremely professional and the teachers are always closely supervising, meaning the quality is also very good."
“After the move, I focused on settling our children into life in Mudgee, but being a stay at home mum wasn’t for me,” she said.
“It’ll be a great learning experience, especially working in a high pressure environment against some really talented competition. Obviously we all want to do well and qualify for Russia. That would be an amazing experience.”
“It would be a dream come true if I got the chance to represent Australia overseas, I’ve always wanted to compete in WorldSkills since high school. If I was to get that far, I would not only be very proud of myself but make my family and employer, Luke Cross Engineering and Rigging, very proud of my achievements.”
“I’ve really enjoyed the WorldSkills experience so far. It’s great to learn new skills and it would be pretty good if I was lucky enough to get to Australia – competing on the other side of the world would be unreal.”
“We have commenced reaching out to the community and I strongly believe that I can help TAFE NSW in Mudgee to deliver the training and educational opportunities that students, industry and the community needs.”
“The reward of having a qualification before I finish school is enough to motivate me to keep managing my time effectively."
“These scholarships are very generous and both the successful students and TAFE NSW are thrilled with the Lions Club of Bathurst Macquarie’s support,” she said. “This financial support will allow Madison and Sierra to continue to study in a career they love, helping them get the skills and experience needed to ensure they’re job-ready.”
“By undertaking the research, I hope to learn best-practice strategies to build resilience in the classroom to enhance a young person’s ability to cope with adverse life events, as well as keeping the youth cohort engaged and on a pathway to success at TAFE NSW.”
“I use the skills I am developing every day at work (Dahab Café) and I believe I’m only able to do my job because of what I have learnt and continue to learn at TAFE NSW."
“I wouldn’t have been able to arrange work experience on my own. I am grateful for the assistance of Helen Doble (TAFE NSW SEE Program Coordinator and Foundation Skills Teacher) and TAFE NSW - they really did help me relaunch my career.”
