WorldSkills is like the Olympics for skills training and Central Graphic Design Production student Chris Williamson is one step closer to representing Australia following his win at the regional competition.

Earlier this year, Central hosted the 2015 WorldSkills WA Regional Graphic Design Technology competition for Cert III for Printing and Graphic Arts (Graphic Design Production) students.

The results are in and Central has come away with outstanding results proving our students are at the forefront of Graphic Design in WA.

Chris Williamson will be presented his gold medal The Grand Ballroom at Crown Perth on the 1 December along with the other successful competitors.

Following his win, Chris will have the opportunity to represent WA and Central when he competes at the national WorldSkills competition next year for a chance to represent Australia internationally.

The high calibre of all Central Graphic Design Production students will be on display at the graduate show located at Building 4, 133 Newcastle Street, Northbridge on 30 November from 6-8pm.

Not only will the work of our graduates be on display, but also pizza from Stuzzico and a letterpress so you can print your own Christmas cards.

Central swamps Expo

Central reflected the biggest ever Skills West Expo by having our largest ever presence in the history of the career showcase.

The Expo is so large this year because it is also hosting the national finals of the Australian WorldSkills competition.

On the first day alone, over 3000 people visited the expo, including the Minister for Training and Workforce Development Dr Kim Hames MLA.

Central is out in full force, showcasing the great range of training courses we have to offer and the opportunities they can lead to.

Whether potential students are interested in business, creative arts, engineering, construction and mining, health, education and community services, IT, science, sport or tourism, Central’s stands offer an experiential and engaging introduction to each course.

Central staff are very easy to spot, sporting striking ‘hands on’ branded shirts made specifically for the Expo and taking our brand to all corners of the mammoth Convention Centre.
