Ninety five TAFE NSW students from 2017 have been honored with awards at the Student Recognition Awards Ceremony held in Macksville last night.
Member for Oxley, Melinda Pavey MP congratulated the 95 winners on behalf of the NSW Government and said the awards demonstrated the importance of TAFE NSW as a training provider in the region.
“TAFE NSW is the largest provider of education and training in Australia and with 95 students picking up awards this week shows TAFE NSW in Oxley is providing our young people with great opportunities,” Ms Pavey MP said.
“TAFE students are in high demand because of the quality of their education and ability to hit the ground running with relevant and practical skills, and I am thrilled to see local students from the public VET provider receive these accolades.
“The NSW Government is delivering on its vision for a strong and publicly owned VET provider through its One TAFE NSW reforms. TAFE NSW students winning these awards demonstrate what is on offer for students if they choose to study at TAFE NSW in Oxley.
“Congratulations to the winners, and I look forward to seeing even more TAFE NSW students in the region recognised in the future.”
Major awards received by TAFE NSW students:
- Bernadette Ballangarry-Wilkes Award, Louise Parth, Certificate III in Business Administration (Medical)
- World Skills Silver Medal winner in Business Administration, Cilla Unterrheiner, will be presented with her medal on the night.
