TAFE NSW student Charlotte Fleming was awarded with a Bronze medal in front of hundreds of her peers from across the country, at the WorldSkills Australia 2023 National Championships Closing Ceremony in Melbourne on Sunday.

The Camden local took out the prestigious award after competing in the Beauty Therapy category of Australia’s largest skills competition hosted at the Melbourne Convention and Exhibition Centre from Thursday to Saturday.

Charlotte Fleming said the accolade is a testament to her hard work and determination, and the invaluable guidance of her mentors.

“Securing a Bronze medal in the competition would not have been possible without the countless hours of preparation and the ongoing support and mentorship of my teachers. They have paved the way for me to achieve beyond anything I could have imagined and I’m excited to keep developing my skills throughout my career in the industry,” Ms Fleming said.

TAFE NSW Team Leader and WorldSkills Australia Experts Faculty Associate Member, Troy Everett said TAFE NSW students are in high demand because of the quality of their education and ability to hit the ground running in the workplace.

“Our students winning these awards demonstrate what is on offer for students if they choose a TAFE education,” Mr Everett said.

Gold medal winners are eligible for consideration for the Australian Skillaroos team who will compete with the world’s best at the WorldSkills International Competition finals to be held in France in 2024.
