“I was very excited to be nominated as a finalist, and to be the recipient of this award is truly an honour. I humbly accepted this award and dedicated it to my ancestors and to my children, for the struggles that have been before us and for the prospects that are yet to come.”
“We focus on the important health messages within smaller communities with a high proportion of Aboriginal people. Talking to schoolchildren gives us an opportunity to promote the benefits of a healthy lifestyle and talk to the mob about our journey, the importance of health and fitness."
“The program has come a long way since we first delivered it to a group of 15 TAFE NSW Automotive apprentices in March last year."
“So far we have done around 20 tours, we’re having great fun doing it and the feedback we have received from people has been really positive – they’ve really enjoyed the tours.”
TAFE Western’s most outstanding staff for 2016 were recognised at the organisation’s prestigious Institute Director’s Awards last night.
“Michael demonstrated all of these qualities and many more during his time studying at TAFE Western. He was a valued team member, was well respected by his peers and an exceptional student, so is a very deserving winner of our most prestigious award.”
“This masterclass helped provide a foundation for participants to grow their online and blended delivery strategies in new and innovative ways."
“We believe that we have gathered a group of truly inspirational Aboriginal speakers, the likes that have not been seen at an event like this in Dubbo before."
“So if you are a beginner or want to upgrade your skills or expand into different areas, we have a number of courses perfect for people of all ages and skills."
“For TAFE Western to have four students out of thousands across the entire state in the top 60 is a great result for the organisation and speaks volumes for our teachers’ abilities.”
