Thompson knows how important the next generation of travel professionals is to the industry.
"We try to teach our students that tourism, travel, holiday parks and resorts, guiding, it's not a job, it's a career.
"We're providing our students across western NSW with training and opportunities that can change their lives, and we're thrilled that we've been recognised for this in such a prestigious, national award."
The winners will be announced July 22 at a special gala dinner at the International Convention Centre in Sydney.
