The achievements of students across the region will once again be recognised with nominations for the Murray Mallee Local Learning and Employment Network’s (LLEN) Student Excellence Awards now open.
Following community feedback from last year’s event and after an extensive review of the awards, this year’s Student Excellence Awards feature a new look.
Murray Mallee LLEN Executive Officer Deb Quin said the 2015 awards included new categories and a streamlined nomination process.
“What’s more, for the first time the Student Excellence Awards nominations will extend to students studying the Victorian Certificate of Applied Learning (VCAL),” Ms Quin said.
“This is in addition to the awards recognising students studying Vocational Education and Training in Schools (VETiS) and Australian School-Based Apprenticeship/Traineeship (SBATs).”
This year’s awards will also feature the inaugural VCAL Partner Achievement Award.
“This award recognises partner organisations that have been outstanding in their support of a VCAL project or program in collaboration with a school,” Ms Quin added.
“The Student Excellence Awards continue to be a wonderful opportunity to acknowledge the efforts of students and celebrate their achievements.
“On behalf of Murray Mallee LLEN, I would like thank everyone who provided their valuable feedback following last year’s event. We believe the new-look Student Excellence Awards addresses this feedback and look forward to once again recognising the outstanding achievements of young people throughout the region.”
Nominations for the Student Excellence Awards close on Friday 9 October. Winners will be announced at a presentation evening to be held at the Swan Hill Town Hall on Tuesday 24 November.
