ONE of the key factors to achieving happiness is being engaged in meaningful work, according to NSW Training Awards Riverina chairwoman Wendy Cooper.
“And people can do that best if they keep training,” she said.
“If people enjoy their work they get better at what they do and training helps with their learning and development.”
With the nominations for this year’s NSW Training Awards now open, Mrs Cooper said it would not only celebrate people’s achievements throughout the year but also encourage future trainees.
Mrs Cooper said the awards also confirmed the nominees had skills in their industry.
Last year’s winner for the Riverina region Kia Belsher said she didn’t realise how beneficial the award would be.
“It’s a huge boost to your resume and credentials,” she said.
Ms Belsher completed a certificate III in business services while working as an administrative assistant with Remote Vocational Training Scheme last year.
“It’s a great way to reflect on what you have done throughout the year and what you have learnt,” she said.
Nominations close on April 4, apply at trainingawards.nsw.gov.au.
