Trainee nominated for State award
Karratha resident Naomi Beath is among a host of trainees making a difference in their fields who have been nominated as finalists in the WA Training Awards 2016.
Ms Beath is contesting the WA Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Student of the Year 2016 category, sponsored by The Graham Farmer Foundation.
Department of Training and Workforce Development director general Ruth Shean said Ms Beath and each of the 42 finalists deserved to be congratulated.
“Each finalist deserves recognition for their outstanding leadership, achievements and contributions within their respective fields,” she said.
“They have shown high standards of performance and commitment to their work.”
Ms Beath gained qualifications in logistics and worked in a role to support the operations team at the Karratha Gas Plant.
She soon discovered a desire to establish a career in this area and after months of study, she has gained the skills required to be a process plant operator.
