TAFE Western’s continued excellence and dedication to delivering positive education and training outcomes in western NSW has been recognised by NSW Premier Mike Baird.
Mr Baird announced yesterday that TAFE Western was a finalist in two categories in the illustrious Premier’s Awards for Public Service – in the categories of Providing Better Support and Opportunities to the Vulnerable and Building Stronger and Safer Communities.
The Premier’s Awards recognise excellence in the delivery of services to the NSW community by the public sector, non-government organisations and private businesses.
“TAFE Western submitted entries for our Building Skills, Building Schools project in Bourke and the Indigenous Police Recruitment Our Way Delivery (IPROWD) program in Dubbo and we’re absolutely thrilled to be finalists in both categories,” Relieving TAFE Western Institute Director Andrew Crowley said.
“Competition was strong with a high volume of nominations received from public sector organisations across the state and for TAFE Western’s two nominations to be shortlisted as finalists is a tremendous result for our organisation and staff who continue to contribute greatly to their local communities.”
Winners of the 2015 Premier’s Awards will be announced at a special ceremony at the Sydney Conservatorium of Music on Tuesday, November 17.
