“She constantly delivers high levels of training and assessment services in community and hospitality, she is innovative and holds the importance of what she’s doing in changing other people’s lives in the highest regard. “She is a role model in our team.”

Jacqui said she was honoured by the nomination.

“Over the past three years I have had the opportunity to develop and apply skills and support that assist our students in employment and education – this makes me very proud!

“Having this recognised by industry professionals feels like a fantastic achievement.”

Due to her skills and natural attributes, Jacqui is also a coach for new trainers and is currently involved as a coach and trainer in the new NV College trainer scholarship program.

Gurrja Anderson, who recently completed her training with Jacqui at NV College and has been engaged as a Trainee Care Support worker by Legacy in Coffs Harbour said, “Jacqui was very understanding and showed she cared more about the individual, rather than just trying to get the point of the lesson across.

“Jacqui was honest about what the job role might be like and didn’t sugar coat it.

“The classes were interesting and the activities were fun.

“She gave each person in the class attention and helps them understand in their own way and learn at their pace.”

The VET Teacher/Trainer of the Year Award recognises innovation and excellence by a teacher/trainer providing nationally recognised training to students at a registered training organisation.

The winner will be announced on Friday 21 June 2024 at an award ceremony in Bryon Bay.
