LOCAL residents have taken top honours in this year’s WA Training Awards.
Maureen Guiloy, of Northam, was presented with the WA Culturally and Linguistically Diverse Training Award.
Danni Grundy, of Toodyay, was named the WA Trainer of the Year.
Both women were presented with their awards at a presentation dinner in Perth on September 4.
Department of Training and Workforce Development director general Ruth Shean congratulated the two for their achievements.
“Danni and Maureen have demonstrated their commitment to make a difference, and will be great ambassadors and role models,” she said.
Ms Guiloy has completed a Certificate II in Leadership Development at the CY O’Connor Institute, which she said has given her the confidence to help the local Filipino community. She is now completing a Certificate II in Business Administration.
“This award means a lot to me; it will give me a greater opportunity to empower migrants in my local community,” Ms Guiloy said.
Ms Grundy is a trainer at the CY O’Connor Institute, teaching students from across the Wheatbelt in childhood education through an interactive online system.
Judges were impressed with Ms Grundy’s passion for teaching and the relationships she had developed with the industry to support the training she was delivering.
