Kathleen keeps on achieving Aug 2nd, 2016
Kathleen Nelly has achieved a great deal since beginning work at Bundiyarra in 2013, and in April this year, she was named Durack Institute of Technology’s Aboriginal Student of the Year.
Through a work placement at Bundiyarra as part of her Business Certificate II, Kathleen became a full-time employee.
Last year, Kathleen returned to study the Certificate IV in Digital Media and Technology at Durack three days a week, while working at Bundiyarra for the other two, and was the recipient of three scholarships to help her on her way.
She was awarded the 2015 Aboriginal Education and Employment and Training Committee (AEETC) Academic Careers Pathways scholarship, and the 2015 Rio Tinto Aboriginal Scholarship. Kathleen also earned herself the 2015 Mid West Development Commission Certificate IV in Digital Media Scholarship to continue her studies at Durack (now Central Regional TAFE).
Kathleen, 21, has achieved what she set out to do and is now working full-time at Bundiyarra once again as Adminstration Coordinator.
Kathleen said she is thrilled to have successfully completed her studies and looks forward to using her new skills as part of her full time role.
