WITH a new qualification under her belt and feeling like she is becoming a �real� Australian, a Rockingham resident is in the spotlight as a finalist in the WA Training Awards.

Department of Training and Workforce Development Director General Ruth Shean congratulated Isabelle O�Connor (pictured)for her achievements.

�Isabelle stands out in her field through the high level of excellence she has achieved,� Dr Shean said.

Ms O�Connor is contesting the WA Culturally and Linguistically Diverse Training Award, sponsored by the Department of Training and Workforce Development.

Originally from the French-speaking region of Canada, Ms O�Connor worked as a paralegal, but was not able to work in the field in her new home country.

After visiting the Perth Careers Centre, Ms O�Connor decided to undertake a Diploma of Human Resources Management.

Ms O�Connor developed new management skills and learnt about Australian workforce practices.

Winners will be announced on September 4.
