Queenslanders score top training titles
Robinson Civil Group (RCG) took home the Medium Employer of the Year Award for going above and beyond supporting staff in their ongoing professional development.
Minister for Training and Skills Development Di Farmer said the business had set the bar high.
“Over the past two years, RCG has grown its training budget to provide staff with tailored training and development plans that suit their individual qualifications, experiences and career aspirations,” she said.
Ms Farmer also congratulated individual award winner, Kasey Hardy, who was named Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Student of the Year.
“Kasey’s interest in the natural gas extraction process and its impact on the environment led her to the inaugural Western Downs Indigenous Traineeship program offered by Harness Energy Services and Shell QGC,” she said.
“After successfully completing her traineeship, Kasey has gone on to study a Certificate IV in Work Health and Safety with Shell QGC and is now a mentor for new Indigenous trainees.
“She has not only impressed her employer and colleagues with her hard work and commitment, but she is also setting an example for other trainees and is on her way to a wonderful career in an industry she is passionate about.”
The Australian Training Awards recognise and celebrate outstanding achievements in the vocational education and training sector.
For the second consecutive year, the awards’ ceremony was a virtual event with Queensland finalists gathering in Brisbane to hear the announcements.
