“These scholarships can make the world of difference for these students – some of whom are single parents who need to travel long distances to attend classes."
“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."
“Potential students can come and check out our facilities at the Wellington TAFE, chat with teachers and support staff and explore some exciting study options for 2017."
“There are no entry requirements for this course – it’s perfect for anyone who may have left school without finishing and wants to get a qualification that helps them get into university or obtain a qualification that’s nationally recognised in the workplace,”
TAFE Western’s most outstanding staff for 2016 were recognised at the organisation’s prestigious Institute Director’s Awards last night.
“My Dad was my main inspiration. I hope to learn leadership, respect, responsibility and how important personal development and faith is."
“The atmosphere was great and the feedback we received from the community has been really positive. It was especially satisfying to see so many youngsters in attendance, learning the importance of NAIDOC Week.”
“We are running this course with the Yarradamarra staff and along with valuable training the participants are going to do a variety of elective units such as Aboriginal arts and crafts with Aunty Iris Reid, Aboriginal Languages with Connie Ah See and Aboriginal music with Michael Donovan."
“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.”
“Our students went against many of the top universities in Australia and competed very well. Although we won no ribbons, the students believe the event was a success because of the exposure and networking opportunities it provided."
