ACCM Student Representing NSW - National Training Awards

Jemasin Joyce

Kiama local, Jemasin Joyce, has been selected to represent NSW at the 2019 Australian Training Awards.

Jemasin recently completed a School Based Traineeship with employer 1300Apprentice in which she was required to complete a BSB20115 Certificate II in Business with Wollongong RTO, ACCM College and put her theory into practice with host employer, ANZ bank – Dapto.

Throughout her traineeship, Jemasin has shown a passion for customer service and demonstrated outstanding skills in communication, teamwork and problem solving.  Jemasin is also an active member of her community where she has helped organise cultural events such as NAIDOC week celebrations and charity events for AIME. Jemasin has also represented Indigenous Australia at the Oceania Cup Tag Football tournament.

This dedication towards her studies, employment and community earned Jemasin a place at the Illawarra and South East NSW training awards where she won Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Student of the year. Jemasin was then invited to attend an interview for the NSW State Training Awards, and after a successful interview, was selected to represent the Illawarra as a State Finalist.

Over 800 people were nominated for the awards but only 27 made it to state finals. Out of all the finalists, only 3 were selected for the Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Student of the Year, and It was Jemasin who deservedly took home the award.

The win means that Jemasin will be heading to Brisbane on the 21st November where she will be representing NSW at the 2019 Australian Training Awards.

Congratulations, Jemasin. We can't wait to see you in Brisbane!
