“Obviously I don’t teach for these type of accolades, but for my students and peers to think I’m worthy of such an award is very gratifying and as good as the award itself.
“When I started out at Hort Enterprises and TAFE I never expected to get the opportunity to travel all over the world. Now I’ve made it this far, I want to make the most of it and see how far I can go with the ultimate goal to make the Skillaroos team and get to compete in Abu Dhabi.”
“TAFE NSW had 14 students nominated as finalists in the six categories – so to have four claim the highest individual honours in their respective categories was a great result for them and the TAFE NSW team,"
“We don’t teach for these types of accolades, but I’m very honoured to even be considered in such prestigious company because there are some really fantastic teachers in our industry across the country.”
