Vocational Education and Training excellence in Western Australia was celebrated on Friday 23rd September as the winners of the 2016 WA Training Awards were announced at a presentation dinner at the Perth Convention and Exhibition Centre. FutureNow extends warm congratulations to all the finalists and winners.
FutureNow assisted three semi-finalists in preparation for their judging interview, and congratulates the following candidates that were selected as finalists:
Louise Brookes went on to win the Vocational Student of the Year category. As a mature-aged student, Louise undertook a Certificate III in Commercial Cookery at South Regional TAFE's Bunbury campus in 2015 and is a shining example of how persistence by juggling study, work and a family has its rewards. She will go on to represent Western Australia at the National Training Awards taking place in Darwin in November.
