“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.
“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.”
“Both applicants have recently left school and have just begun their studies with a clear goal in mind. We hope the scholarship of $500 each will help them continue their studies and develop new and exciting interests 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.”
“I really enjoyed being able to study with my Mum, TAFE NSW provides a friendly environment which allows you to learn and mix with people of different ages."
Roxanne Streatfield said enrolments were now open for courses on Microsoft products that employers recognise at TAFE NSW, including Intermediate Excel, Intermediate Word and a Statement of Attainment in Advanced Skills in Microsoft Applications.
“I am very grateful for the support I received from the staff at TAFE NSW Mudgee and in particular my teacher Jim (James Mackin),” he said. “He was flexible and made me feel comfortable considering the circumstances.
“The Certificate III in Early Childhood Education and Care was not only extremely popular in Mudgee, it’s actually TAFE NSW’s most popular course in western NSW."
“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.”
“It also gives them nationally accredited units of competence, counts towards their Higher School Certificate and helps them make informed decisions about their future careers.”
