“I was really surprised when my teacher called me and told me he was nominating me for this award, and I was even more shocked when I found out I’d won."
“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.”
“Every year TAFE NSW students have the chance to help at the Motorsport Training Centre, with many drivers and teams in different classes relying on us to help them with mechanical and panel repairs to get them back on the track and racing again.”
“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.”
