TAFE NSW Ultimo alumni Maddison Camilleri has been awarded Trainee of the Year at the prestigious Central and Northern Sydney Regional Training Awards Presentation Event at The Concourse, Chatswood last night.

TAFE NSW students claimed four of the six awards on offer at the Training Services NSW event, including Jane Tieken who won Vocational Student of the Year, Tahni Roberts who won Aboriginal and Torres Strait Island Student of the Year and Troy Ward who won Apprentice of the Year.

Maddison, who is employed by SCP Consulting said: “I’m so excited to have won this award. My time at TAFE NSW opened up so many doors for me and has made me really passionate about becoming an ambassador for VET training as I believe it doesn’t receive enough recognition.”

TAFE NSW Regional General Manager Alison Wood congratulated Maddison.

“These awards recognise our most passionate, industrious and skillful students, and they should be very proud to have been acknowledged for their excellence amongst their peers from across the region.”

TAFE NSW is determined to train students to the highest level, equip them with practical skills and the right work experience so they are ready to hit the ground running in their chosen field, Ms Wood said

“I have no doubt Maddison will go on to forge a highly successful career and will be a wonderful ambassador for TAFE NSW,” said Ms Wood. 

The annual Training Services NSW event recognises and rewards the outstanding achievements of vocational students and demonstrates the extent of quality in the vocational education and training sector.
