Bubup Wilam Australian Award Finalists
Australian Training Awards 2016
Only one week to go and we fly to Darwin to receive our award as one of the top three finalists for Australia in the Australian Medium Employer of the Year category in the Australian Training Awards.
Regardless of who is announced as the overall winner we are so proud to be recognised in the top three in Australia!!! It has been a huge process firstly winning this award as the best in the State of Victoria and then being judged out of all state and territory winners and chosen as one of the top three in the country! We were up against some high quality competitors as you can imagine. It goes to show just how amazing Bubup Wilam for Early Learning Aboriginal Child and Family Centre is and celebrates all we have achieved as a self-determined Aboriginal organisation.
This award showcases our innovative and unique training model with the Cert III and Diploma of Early Childhood Education and Care delivered on site at Bubup Wilam through two knowledge systems, the increase in Aboriginal employment and Aboriginal leadership as a result, the on site professional development program for all staff and most importantly the quality outcomes for the children and families, made even more possible because of the high quality training of all staff. This is true Aboriginal self-determination in action with all we do underpinned by an Aboriginal knowledge system and led by Aboriginal people! It’s a lifelong learning approach and is an award that acknowledges the exemplary work we do across all aspects of the organisation.
No matter what happens we are strong, proud and deadly and we must celebrate all we have achieved.
CONGRATULATIONS TO EVERYONE!!!
