My Gateway Awards 2016
On Friday 11th of November MG My Gateway held their 20th Annual Apprentice and Trainee Awards at Campbelltown Catholic Club.
Being one of the biggest providers of traineeships in NSW, ACCM was proud to sponsor the event which recognises the hard work and dedication that the apprentices, trainees and host employers demonstrate throughout their studies.
ACCM employees, Sherre Brown, Larraine Brown, Melissa Draper and Brett Riddett were among the 300 visitors and finalists who were treated to a very well presented evening.
The night began with a speech from My Gateway’s Chairman, Robert Rofe who praised the hard work of all the finalists. It was also an opportunity for Robert Rofe to announce that, moving forward, they will be known as simply “My Gateway” with a rebrand and a brand new website that you can check out here
There was success for one ACCM student on the night.
ACCM student, Ricky Prasad, won Information Technology Trainee of the Year.
Ricky is currently completing his Certificate III in Information, Digital Media and Technology with the College and was recognised for his high work ethic and his willingness to improve himself.
Ricky was accompanied to the awards with 2 of his work colleagues and the Mayor of Liverpool, Wendy Waller. This is another great example of how employers and colleagues are a key part of any trainee’s success and how their input and support helps a trainee succeed in their studies and career.
Commiserations to the three ACCM students who were finalists in the fiercely contested category of Local Government Trainee of the Year Award. Alana Begovic, Jack Rooke and Jodie Skidmore are all currently completing the Certificate III in Business with host employer, Camden Council.
The Winner of the category was Emily Langford who is studying a Certificate III in Business Administration with host employer Wollondilly Shire Council. Runner up in the category was another Wollondilly Shire Council trainee, Kayla Abela.
