Shaquille Robinson

Shaquille receiving his award

Shaquille Robinson won the Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander of the Year Award at the 2015 NSW Training Awards.

Having dropped out of a university law degree Shaquille gained experience and confidence in the workforce. Shaquille travels across NSW educating Aboriginal women about their civil law rights.

By undertaking a Certificate IV in Training and Assessment at Sydney TAFE's EORA College she is able to implement what she has learnt for the benefit of her clients.

Now 21, Shaquille is on track to start her law degree in 2016.

"With my TAFE qualification behind me, I'm going to start university so much further ahead," she says.

She has always had a passion for educating and informing people about their rights, so was able to pick up her new skills quickly, showing great aptitude in communicating with co-workers and clients.

Shaquille hopes to one day become a solicitor so that she can better represent Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people.

Shaquille will be participating in the National Training Awards which will be held in Hobart on 19 November.
