TAFE students achieve

THE North Coast Institute of TAFE has celebrated the achievements of more than 260 of its Coffs Harbour students.

At a ceremony at C.ex the institute’s director Elizabeth McGregor told the students the qualifications they had gained were the keys to the futures.

“The qualification that you have gained is a very real investment, providing up to 20% return on that investment, depending on your qualification, and what you do with it,” Ms McGregor said.

Four students were recognised for outstanding achievement.

The Coffs Harbour City Council Awards for Outstanding Apprentice went to both Andrew Blackford and Demi Brotherson.

Andrew is employed by W. E. Smith Engineering as a welding and fabrication apprentice, while Demi is a hairdressing apprentice with Kerrie Di Mattia Hairstylist in Grafton.

The TAFE Student Association award for Outstanding Achievement in a Certificate course went to Julie Boyce, for her great results in Certificate III in Business, while the C.ex Coffs Award for Outstanding Achievement on a Major Course went to Nikki Sinclair, recognising her effort in completing the Diploma of Events.
