“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.”
“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."
TAFE Western’s most outstanding staff for 2016 were recognised at the organisation’s prestigious Institute Director’s Awards last night.
“We want to experience life-changing situations and be recognised in the hospitality world for promoting our native foods and flavours along with successful people like The Black Olive."
“This is a life-changing opportunity for these seven ladies to get to attend Kambarang, where they will get to practise and explore Aboriginal bush foods and flavours with some of the best Aboriginal chefs in the world,”
“Mark was really surprised at the students’ experience and enthusiasm, and was also impressed by the quality of their work and their hard-working attitude.”
“I’d like to congratulate our successful students - Shaun, Shaylyn, Kellie and Sammantha – their individual success in the NSW Regional Training Awards is very much deserved and speaks volumes for the talent, hard work and dedication they demonstrated while completing their studies.”
“This new facility - which has been named Paliira-Ngurta-Ngurta-Kiira (Bakandji Aboriginal language meaning Good Teaching Place) - is custom-designed, supporting TAFE Western’s strategy to create an easily accessible Student Hub for all learners."
“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.”
“Christopher is an inspiring student who demonstrated great leadership qualities during his time at TAFE and was someone his peers could turn to for help and advice."
