  • 06/18/13--23:08: Where are they now
  • Petersham College graduate Anna Ginis  is now an experienced early child hood teacher, running the junior room at one of Sydney’s inner west busy long day care centres.  

    After completing her two year full time Diploma in Children’s Services, Anna was employed full time at a day care centre in Rozelle, then in Earlwood and has worked for the past seven years in Drummoyne. Anna always knew she wanted to work with children and after eight years in the industry she still loves every moment.  

    “Every day is different; the things children say, seeing their interests develop and watching them learn through play, are the highlights” said Anna. “Dealing with the families, children and staff you build many relationships and it’s a great feeling to know the things you have achieved during the day.”

    Anna hopes one day to be the director of a long day care centre.

     “While working in New York, I decided to apply for a part-time fashion course,” Inderpreet said.
    “I soon realised that I was very happy creating and, with the help of a supportive husband, decided to study fashion full-time. I started to research fashion courses and quickly discovered that the Fashion Design Studio under the tutelage of Nicholas Huxley offered one of the best courses in the world,” Inderpreet said.

    Fashion students embark on a passage to India to build ethical partnerships with Indian manufacturers and traditional artisans.   

    Fifteen fashion technology students from Sydney Institute left for India today to participate in a study tour designed to engage them with ethical manufacturing systems.The program also aims to  help students build sustainable contacts with one of Australia’s leading manufacturing partners, India which will give them a head start after graduation.

    The students studying the Advanced Diploma of Applied Fashion Design and Technology will have the opportunity to source environmentally friendly fabrics and enlist the help of traditional artisans to create contemporary designs for their final collections. This is a great opportunity for the students to build contacts and broaden their sourcing skills to encourage a sustainable fashion future. We hope this will give the students a competitive advantage when heading out into the industry," Tracey Malvern, Head Teacher of Fashion Technology said.

    The tour is conducted by, Artisan Culture, a Sydney based organisation aiming to bridge the gap between designers, traditional artisans and ethical manufacturers. The founder, Julie Lantry began working with traditional artisans in India over ten years ago for her label Bulb. In these changing times, it's imperative that Australian designers and fashion production teams know where and how garments are being manufactured,"Julie said.

    The students will visit traditional artisans, small, medium & large scale manufacturers, learn about cultural differences and see first hand the positive aspects of how the garment industry can change the quality of lives in countries such as India.

    Good luck to all our students, we know you will have an amazing educational experience!

The students will work with the Maranahali Bande quarry and local women in the community to create and sell jewellery made from granite dust clay. The aim is to help break the poverty cycle in the local village by empowering women with new found sustainable skills. The students hope to make 1000 pieces while in India. They will also be volunteering two hours per day at the Indian Children’s Centre.

    Giles Roberts, who is currently studying the film and television course at Randwick College, will be creating social film stories focusing on the journey of this year’s, 40K participants. Gino’s goal is to create 40 mini episodes which will be uploaded to YouTube on a daily basis.

  • 07/11/13--23:12: May the force be with you
  • IPROWD graduates

    What do the National Rugby League, the NSW Police Force and Aboriginal people have in common?

    They have in common the Indigenous Police Recruitment Our Way Delivery (IPROWD) program.

    IPROWD saw another 13 Aboriginal men and women graduating at TAFE NSW – Sydney Institute, Eora College in late June 2013.

    IPROWD is a joint project between TAFE NSW, the NSW Police Force, Charles Sturt University and the Australian Federal Government. It was created to give young Indigenous people the skills, confidence and knowledge to take positive steps in pursuing a variety of career opportunities within the NSW Police Force.

    According to Danny Allende, Sydney TAFE’s Yulang Aboriginal Education Unit Manager, Aboriginal communities, especially the men, have an overwhelming passion for NRL.

    “From a training point of view, it makes sense to tap into the sport to show young people what career opportunities are open to them,” Danny said.

    That’s where the School to Work (S2W) Program came in.

    A combined initiative of Canterbury Bulldogs, Parramatta Eels, Penrith Panthers, Wests Tigers, Department of Education, Employment and Workplace Relations and the National Rugby League, the Learn Earn Legend! S2W helps create successful careers for Aboriginal students in Years 11 and 12.

    When student Jason Heath told Dean Feeney (Bulldogs S2W Project Officer) he wanted to be a copper, Dean was straight back to him within half an hour with details of the IPROWD program.

    One of the 13 graduating students and one of two from S2W, Jason is well on his way to achieving his dream.

    Michelle Baillie, NRL School to Work Program Manager, said the IPROWD program was a fantastic initiative.

    “It clearly delivers what it set out to achieve,” Michelle said.

    “It was inspirational to hear the participants share their experience, and the words should make you all feel very proud of the work you do.

    “We are looking forward to continued collaboration with IPROWD (and all its very relevant stakeholders) in order to enable us to assist our young people achieve their dream,” Michelle said.

    Also attending the graduation was former Bulldogs player, and S2W ambassador and mentor, Michael Lett who expressed his desire to join the IPROWD program next year.

    Speaking at the graduation, Andrew Scipione, Commissioner for the NSW Police said 27 IPROWD graduates had taken up employment within the NSW Police Force, with another 18 IPROWD graduates currently at the Goulburn Police Force Academy.

    The IPROWD program was first delivered in Western NSW in 2008. The June graduation at Eora was the fourth IPROWD program offered there in the past two years.

    Tropfest NY winners Tristan Klein and Nick Baker

    In front of a crowd of more than 22,000 people, Tropfest – the world’s largest short film festival – concluded in Brooklyn, New York with graduateTristan Klein and co-creator Nick Baker, claiming first prize for a film called “The Unlikely Maestro”. 

    An all-star panel of judges engaged in a lengthy and animated discussion before the event’s host Liev Schreiber announced the winner.

    Tristan Klein and Nick Baker’s film “The Unlikely Maestro” captivated the audience and jury with an animated story of a humble rat that dreams of becoming a world-famous conductor.

    “Winning Tropfest New York is a strange mix of jet lag and humility. It’s a very humbling experience to place first amongst all of these strong films,” co-director Nick Baker said.

    The finalist films were each made specifically for Tropfest NY and followed the format guidelines, including incorporating the ‘Tropfest Signature Item’ (TSI). This year’s TSI was ‘Bridge’ which could be interpreted in any way the filmmaker chose.

    “It was very exciting to have Tropfest in Brooklyn this year.  Not only am I happy to call it home, but in many ways Brooklyn is the heartbeat of New York’s creative culture, which was very much reflected in the energy of our audience tonight,” festival founder John Polson said. “This was one of the strongest years ever in terms of the number and quality of the films that were submitted, and we look forward to making Tropfest an annual tradition in one of the great film capitals of the world.”

More than 200 students and industry delegates attended the conference.

    CISA launched the I’m not Australian, but I have an Australian story project at the conference, designed to raise awareness about international students’ presence and their participation in the Australian community. This is funded by the Australian Government Department of Immigration and Citizenship through its Diversity and Social Cohesion project.

    “We are honoured to be the first VET provider to host CISA’s conference given its importance to the international student community and those industries who engage with them. 

    “The timing could not be better for Sydney Institute to play host … in 2012 our best practice was acknowledged and we were named International Training Provider of the Year at the Australian Training Awards.”

    Sydney TAFE signs MOU with BAHS

    For the second year, Busan Automotive Meister High School (BAHS) in Korea is sending two groups of students to Sydney TAFE to improve their English communication skills at SITEC and get a taster of the automotive training at Sydney TAFE AutoCel.

    The Sydney TAFE program has been so successful and so popular among the students that they compete to be selected for the next tour. Principal Seung Hee Lee says this is a great way not only to provide a valuable international experience for the students, but also to motivate them to study even harder at home.

    In June, Sydney TAFE’s Director - International Study Pathways Lana Salatski visited BAHS and signed an MOU envisaging the continuation of the program and the potential for recognition of BAHS vocational training and completion of a certificate level qualification in Sydney. Ms Salatski was enthusiastically greeted by the former participants of Sydney TAFE study tours who had very fond memories of their time in Ultimo College and asked to say hello to their English and auto teachers. 

    The school reported that the participants’ English proficiency scores have improved by between 100 and 250 points on the TOEIC scale, measured before and after the tour.

    The next tour is scheduled for October this year.

    BAHS is very prestigious in Korea and is one of the schools that have been selected and supported by the government to become a Meister school – a top quality vocational training provider. According to Principal Lee, 96% of graduates have employment offers at graduation.

    Tasting Success graduates with their mentors and sponsors

    On Monday 5 August, eight female cookery students and apprentices from Sydney TAFE graduated from the 2013 Tasting Success Mentoring Program.

    Since its inception in 2007, more than 50 women have participated in the Tasting Success Program. Co-founded by Lyndey Milan with Sydney TAFE and supported by the NSW Office for Women’s Policy, Department of Premier and Cabinet, it aims to inspire talented female chefs in NSW to reach their full potential within the hospitality industry.

    When Hannah Holden found out at the beginning of the year that she was to be mentored by Peter Gilmore from the Quay restaurant she exclaimed she was “giddy with excitement!”

    At the end of the experience Hannah said she was grateful to be given such a wonderful opportunity and to be paired such an inspirational mentor.

    “I really enjoyed seeing how beautiful Peter’s work is, the large variety of produce and the ingredients I’ve never seen before,” Hannah said.

    “As silly as it sounds, one day when I was butchering pig jowls I felt really trusted and part of the team. I was doing something new and exciting.”

    Tina Nguyen who was mentored by Kylie Kwong said it had been liberating working with Kylie and meeting other great chefs.

    As well as cooking with Kylie at the Billy Kwong restaurant, Tina accompanied Kylie to the Taste of Sydney festival and Eveleigh Markets. A highlight of Tina’s time was being with Kylie when she was interviewed by Channel Seven.

    “[The program] has allowed me to see the various options I have as a cook/chef and restaurateur. Learning about Kylie’s experiences and success will help me make my choices in future,” Tina said.

    The program has given students from Ultimo and Sutherland Colleges, a unique opportunity to be mentored by some of Australia’s most renowned chefs. This year they included Peter Gilmore, Sean Moran, Kylie Kwong, Alex Herbert, Martin Boetz, Paris Cutler, and Uwe Habermehl. 

    Students received hand-on advice and access to a network of senior chefs and industry professionals. They also experienced first-hand the workings of high end restaurants and catering establishments and were involved in everything from assisting in menu and recipe development to working with their mentors on publicity events, cooking demonstrations, food styling and photo shoots.

    Jean Carroll

    Jean Carroll has left a lasting legacy in the world of hats.

    Starting in 1937 as an apprentice milliner at the age of 14, Jean’s career spanned 75 years, including work with Sydney TAFE and NIDA, only retiring in 2012.

    In 2005 she was awarded the Medal of the Order of Australia for service to the theatrical arts as a designer and teacher of theatrical millinery.

    In 2011 she became an ambassador for Sydney TAFE.

     

    Sydney TAFE education program manager Connie Hart remembered her friend with much affection.

    “Jean loved teaching. She said her first love was passing on her knowledge to a new generation of milliners,” Connie said.

    “Her motto was ‘knowledge is there to give to others’.

    “She was a hard task-master in her classes expecting nothing but the best from her students.

    “Jean said that she ‘loved seeing how hats grew … once you put it on a head it’s alive. It’s the character – whether it’s a policeman, ballet dancer or nurse’.”

    Sydney TAFE theatre costume teacher Roslyn O’Dell said that Jean selflessly volunteered large amounts of time, making herself available to students who required extra advice and reassurance for their theatrical millinery projects.

    “Even long after their training was finished, ex-students who were then working in costume showrooms, or launching their own millinery labels would still keep in contact with Jean, asking advice that would bring their creations to life … and as generous as always, she would be their mentor and make time to help them, and always with a sense of humour,” Roslyn said.

    “She fuelled the passion of many students who subsequently have made successes of their careers in both theatrical and fashion millinery.”

    Ultimo teacher Bronwyn Shooks, with the benefit of the wealth of Jean’s knowledge, carries on Jean’s legacy in teaching Sydney TAFE students millinery skills.

    A memorial for Jean was held at NIDA in August.

    Check out the facebook page dedicated to Jean for more images and information about her amazing life.

  • 08/12/13--21:56: A flair for success
  • the winning design by Yousef Akbar

    Sydney TAFE’s Fashion Design Studio students dominated this year’s Flair Awards.

    An annual fashion award event in Taree, the Flair Awards recognise the work achieved by talented designers throughout Australia.

    This year our students won 10 of the major awards, as well as seven highly commended mentions.

    As well as winning the Tailoring Award, Yousef Akbar was announced as Designer of the Year.

    Acording to the Manning River Times, the award “went to an eye catching design that stood out from the moment it hit the runway.

    “Yousef Akbay … wowed the judges and the crowd with his ensemble featured in the tailoring section … The attention to detail with every bead and precise stitch blew the judges away.

    “A mix of sheer black lace and intricate beading, teamed with a peplum tailored coat and statement, wide-brim felt hat, meant the showstopper was unanimously chosen to take out its section as well as the night.”

    Sadly this is the last year the Flair Awards will be held.

    Long-time supporter of the awards, Fashion Design Head Teacher, Nicholas Huxley said he and his students would greatly miss the event.

    “But there’s a lot of changes happening in the industry at the moment and I suppose this is just going with the flow of it,” Nicholas said.

    “Flair is so intimate and the prize money is fantastic so it’s been ideal for [students] to showcase their work and see what others are doing too.”

    Loftus staff and students present cheque to Kookaburra Kids

    Organised solely by Diploma of Remedial Massage students at Loftus campus, money was raised for the Kookaburra Kids foundation.

    The Australian Kookaburra Kids Foundation supports children who are living in families affected by mental illness. Providing free weekend camps and school holiday activities, Kookaburra Kids offers respite for a child who is often the primary carer assuming responsibilities well beyond their years.  Together with an education and early intervention program Kookaburra Kids provides an opportunity for kids to simply be kids.

    Loftus Campus Assistant Director Hilde Goodchild said she was proud of what the students had achieved.

    “They had the idea that through their massage skills they could raise money for this very worthy cause,” Hilde said.

    “They really needed little guidance from the teaching staff and ran the fundraising day which included a BBQ lunch.

    “It was a great feeling to be able to present the CEO of Kookaburra Kids Pam Brown with a cheque representing the fundraising efforts.”
