TAFE & Adult Provision Congratulations Training Award winners
The 67Th Victorian Training Awards were held on Saturday 16 October, celebrating the ongoing commitment of our sector to providing quality education and support to our students and each other.
Our congratulations go to Catherine Scarth for winning the Lynne Kosky Memorial Award for Lifetime Achievement. This award goes to Cath and the AMES team for their work providing interconnected education and employment services to migrants and refugees, in addition to the support that many teachers provided to refugees in offshore detention centres.
Congratulations also to Julie Kramer for winning Teacher/Trainer of the Year. Julie won this prestigious award for catering to the individual needs of her students in Aged Care at Bendigo TAFE.
In the training provider category, Box Hill Institute won the Inclusive Award for its partnership with Disability Service providers. Holmesglen won the Industry Collaboration Award for its partnership with three construction companies in upskilling workers on the Metro Tunnel Project.
William Angliss was also named the Large Provider of the Year for its quick transition to remote learning, which included cookery teachers running demonstrations from their own kitchens. Much of the recognition for this award should go to staff, many of whom have had to use their own equipment to teach remotely, as it was not provided by their employer.
Congratulations are due to all our TAFE members for their extraordinary resourcefulness in meeting student needs in uniquely challenging circumstances.
