Two big wins at State Training Awards

Central had a couple of major wins at the WA Training Awards at the Convention Centre on Friday evening.

Engineering student Marjan Ghadirian (picture above, left) won the WA Culturally and Linguistically Diverse Training Award. Marjan only came to Australia in 2010 and is taking giant strides in her goal to gain an engineering degree and ultimately become a fully qualified Mechanical Engineer.

Three out of the four finalists in this category were from Central with the other two being Narges Feyz Bakhsh (Education Support) and Ahmad Sadiqi (Community Services).

Central was also successful in winning the WA International Training Provider of the Year award. This is the third time we have won this award in four years, which is testament to the quality of our programs and services for international students.

Other Central finalists on the night were Holly Johnson (Sport and Recreation), for WA School Based Apprentice of the Year, and Roderick Manton, a trainee studying a Diploma of Engineering (Mechanical Technical), for WA Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Student of the Year.

Congratulations to Marjan and all the Central students for their achievements in making the finals in their respective categories.
