Broome Advertiser - - News - Jakeb Wad­dell

From health and beauty to agri­cul­ture and au­to­mo­tive, a lo­cal TAFE that of­fers it all has its eyes on the big prize af­ter ris­ing above the rest at an awards night last month.

North Re­gional TAFE, which has a num­ber of cam­puses across the Kim­ber­ley, has been short­listed for the 2017 Aus­tralian Train­ing Awards in Can­berra next month af­ter win­ning a ma­jor award.

It was crowned the Large Train­ing Provider of the Year at the WA Train­ing Awards on Septem­ber 15, where the State’s best stu­dents, lec­tur­ers and train­ing providers were recog­nised.

Man­ag­ing di­rec­tor Kevin Doig ac­cepted the award in Perth and said staff had worked tire­lessly to make the TAFE what it is to­day.

“The win is tes­ta­ment to the ded­i­ca­tion and com­mit­ment of our staff,” he said. “The judges noted the en­thu­si­asm of stu­dents and the pos­i­tive en­gage­ment with staff dur­ing their visit, and it’s re­ally en­cour­ag­ing to see this be­ing recog­nised.”

North Re­gional TAFE has six cam­puses in the Kim­ber­ley — in Broome, Derby, Fitzroy Cross­ing, Halls Creek, Ku­nunurra and Wyn­d­ham.
