Box Hill Institute is thrilled to be named as a finalist in the Victorian Training Awards categories for Large Training Provider of the Year and the Inclusive Training Provider of the Year. We’re also excited that our Certificate IV in Veterinary Nursing student, Nicole Barrow, has been shortlisted for the Trainee of the Year award and our Certificate III in Electrotechnology Electrician student, Van Sui Thawng, has been shortlisted for the School-based Apprentice or Trainee of the Year.
Box Hill Institute CEO, Vivienne King said, "This is wonderful recognition of the hard work we've been doing and a marvellous reflection of our dedicated staff who work tirelessly to ensure our students become proud and successful learners, valued by industry and community.
"We're also very proud of Van and Nicole. Nicole was named Box Hill Institute's Trainee of the Year earlier this year, the same week as her fiancé proposed and she became engaged. Receiving the Victorian Training Award for Trainee of the Year would cap off a pretty special year for Nicole. I wish both her and Van the best of luck," she said.
Box Hill Institute last received the Large Training Provider award in 2016 and the following year, our Coordinator – Advanced Building Design, Susan Morris, took out the Teacher/Trainer of the Year.
