On Tuesday 5 November Creative Industries Project Manager Jo Pickup attended the ACS Foundation’s Scholarship Presentation evening at Parliament House, Perth. The ACS Foundation awarded 32 scholarships to final year tertiary IT students who were chosen based through an application and interview process.
Their scholarship enabled them to undertake paid work placements with some of WA’s top companies in 2013, and in some cases this has led to full-time work opportunities upon completion of their training. Special mention to Challenger Institute – with 4 of their students being 2013 ACS scholars – the highest representation of any VET training provider and congratulations to Carolyn Toleman at the ACS for another successful year of this successful scholarship program.
