Carl Tinsley, Teacher Automotive Repair & Refinishing,
Manufacturing & Transport at SWSI has received a National
Collision Repairer Lifetime Achievement Award.
Tinsley and over 200 other industry participants were present at a
breakfast held in conjunction with the Collision Repair Expo at Crown
in Melbourne on Friday 7th April.
Carl has always had a passion for ongoing professional development
which was initially filled by completing evening courses at TAFE NSW
then to becoming a "part time" TAFE NSW teacher at Mt Druitt
College then at Granville and eventually full-time teaching at TAFE
This passion has led to the main reason for this nomination as Carl
extended this to encouraging excellence from his students not only at
TAFE NSW but encouraging them to enter both colour matching
competitions and WorldSkills.
Carl has been instrumental in promoting outstanding performance from
young Australians by being instrumental in the foundation of the
Future Leaders Awards which showcases and rewards their achievements.
Not only was Carl instrumental in the development of the awards but
has nominated many young people for them.
