Northam Tafe student a finalist for WA Training Awards

LALIDA Udomsak is one of three Central Regional Tafe students to be selected as finalists in this year’s WA Training Awards.

The Northam-based student is a contender for the WA Cultural Diversity Training Award.

Ms Udomsak, who immigrated to Australia from Thailand, has embraced the opportunity to develop her English language oral and written communication skills by completing a General Education for Adults course.

“Enrolling in tafe has increased my confidence when speaking English and when conversing and interacting with others,” she said.

“I was not given the opportunity to study in Thailand so now I’m embracing every opportunity to learn and improve myself.”

She hopes her studies will lead to further vocational training in aged care or nursing.

Central Regional Tafe managing director Bill Swetman said selection as a finalist was a significant achievement for the students.

Winners will be announced at a presentation dinner at the Perth Convention and Exhibition Centre on September 15 before representing WA at the Australian Training Awards later this year.
