Pilbara News - - News - Sophia Con­stan­tine

The Pil­bara’s North Re­gional TAFE has been crowned West­ern Aus­tralia’s Large Train­ing Provider of the Year.

The WA Train­ing Awards, held each year, recog­nise the State’s top-achiev­ing stu­dents, lec­tur­ers and train­ing providers for their com­mit­ment and lead­er­ship within the vo­ca­tional ed­u­ca­tion and train­ing sec­tor.

North Re­gional TAFE man­ag­ing direc­tor Kevin Doig, who ac­cepted the award at the cer­e­mony in Perth on Fri­day, September 15, said the win was a tes­ta­ment to the ded­i­ca­tion and com­mit­ment of his staff.

“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,” he said.

Mr Doig said the staff had worked in­cred­i­bly hard over the past 18 months to pro­vide a unique and cus­tomised ex­pe­ri­ence.

“These achieve­ments truly re­in­force the in­cred­i­ble ef­forts of our team and will serve as en­cour­age­ment for ev­ery­one to keep up do­ing a fan­tas­tic job into 2018.

“It is not just about teach­ing the course, but ev­ery­thing that comes with the learn­ing ex­pe­ri­ence, and the sup­port ser­vices we have to as­sist stu­dents through their stud­ies.”

North West Re­gional TAFE re­ceived the high­est stu­dent rank­ing in the State last year and has now been en­tered into the short-list­ing se­lec­tion process for the 2017 Aus­tralian Train­ing Awards.
