TAFE in national business awards
WIDE Bay Institute of TAFE has taken out the Innovative Business Award at the Australian Training Awards in Sydney.
Nine Queenslanders contested the national awards after winning the Queensland Training Awards in September. The winners were announced last week.
Education Minister Geoff Wilson said Queenslanders were leading the way to keep skills at the cutting edge.
“These are great examples of people working at an individual level to boost their own qualifications and organisations investing in Queensland’s future by encouraging skilled workers,” Mr Wilson said.
“To be recognised at a national level is a tremendous acknowledgment of the efforts of these individuals and organisations.”
Wide Bay Institute of TAFE (WBIT) is the largest training provider in the Wide Bay region and delivers more than 300 vocational programs to about 12,000 students each year.
