“These are key areas that we pride ourselves in at TAFE Western and we’re absolutely thrilled that we have staff, students and programs that are recognised right across the state as leaders in their respective fields.
“For TAFE Western to win five awards available to all TAFE NSW Institutes state-wide in 2016 is a very substantial result.”
Ms Baxter announced that TAFE Western had been successful in the following categories:
Youth Engagement Award – Dubbo Opportunity Hub;
“Aaron, Shaylyn and Katherine are all impressive students who demonstrated tenacity, skills and exemplary work ethics to graduate in 2015 and very much deserve this recognition,” Ms Baxter said.
