Business Breakfast at ACK Invitation

Assumption College student Caitlin Maher is named Victorian School-based Apprentice of the Year 2014

Assumption College is proud of year 12 student Caitlin Maher, Victorian School-based Apprentice of the Year. She won the accolade at the Victorian Training Awards on September 26. Caitlin is completing a Certificate III in Aged Care at Blue Cross Willowmeade Kilmore in collaboration with GOTAFE.

Two other ACK students were finalists in the awards: Olivia Bennetts, who is undertaking a Certificate III in Commercial Cookery at the Hidden Valley Restaurant and Joel Brincat, who is completing a Certificate III in Plumbing with Laidlaw Plumbing and Drainage.

The Victorian Training Awards, now in their 60th year, promote and reward outstanding achievement and innovation in vocational education and training. They also acknowledge the strong partnerships between training providers and Victorian businesses which are vital to providing a strong skills base for Victoria.

Caitlin, who hopes to begin a Bachelor of Nursing next year, has won a $10,000 fellowship and will represent Victoria at the 2014 Australian Training Awards in Adelaide on November 21.

According to Willowmeade spokeswoman Mandy Heather, staff and residents are most impressed with Caitlin: “She has impressed them with her maturity, her compassion and her desire to make a difference to the quality of life of the elderly people she cares for.

“She … brings a youthful freshness and vitality to Willowmeade which is greatly appreciated by the residents and her colleagues. No one who knows Caitlin would be surprised if she went on to win the Australian School-based Apprentice Award as well.”
