SVACS Students Reach Finals
The WA Training Awards recognise and reward outstanding achievements of apprentices, trainees and vocational students, and the contribution to training made by trainers, training organisations and employers. Through celebrating these successes, the Awards continue to put our State's top achievers in the spotlight.
There are 12 categories in the WA Training Awards; eight individual categories and four organisation categories.
This year, Swan Valley Anglican Community School has two students who have made it all the way through to the finals in their categories – a wonderful achievement for both of them!
- Caitlin Whittle (Year 12) – School-based Apprentice of the Year nominee
- Jess Haydon (Year 12) – Vocational Student of the Year nominee
The WA School-based Apprentice of the Year is presented to a student who is undertaking a Certificate II or above qualification as a part time school-based apprentice or trainee. The award recognises the student’s commitment to their formal studies at school and in the workplace. The WA Vocational Student of the Year recognises an outstanding student’s achievement in a course of study leading to a nationally recognised qualification. A maximum of only four finalists are shortlisted state-wide for each individual award category.
Winners in individual categories receive $3,000 to further their training or kick start their careers. We look forward to hearing how Caitlin and Jess progress throughout the rest of the competition when they attend the presentation dinner at the Crown on 28 September 2018. They are both wished the best of luck in their respective categories.
