TARYN Sharp, of Bal­divis, is a fi­nal­ist in the WA Trainer of the Year Awards.

The awards show­case ex­cel­lence in the vo­ca­tional ed­u­ca­tion and train­ing (VET) sec­tor.

Ms Sharp teaches aged care and dis­abil­ity sup­port work, and leisure and health at North Metro Tafe.

Ms Sharp said her fo­cus was on pro­mot­ing the in­dus­try in a pos­i­tive way. She tried to be sup­port­ive of stu­dents and staff.

“I en­joy be­ing able to share my pas­sion,” she said. “I en­cour­age stu­dents to be the best they can be.”

Ms Sharp works as an oc­cu­pa­tional ther­a­pist in the aged care in­dus­try.

Ed­u­ca­tion and Train­ing Min­is­ter Sue Ellery said the train­ing sys­tem pro­vided West Aus­tralians with a chance to change their fu­ture.

“It al­lows em­ploy­ers to up­skill ex­ist­ing em­ploy­ees to ad­dress skills gaps as the state's econ­omy grows and di­ver­si­fies,” she said.
